Curator’s Artifact Tour
Curator's Artifact Tours are conducted at 3:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month beginning May 23 through October. Tours start from the Pocahontas statue.
Senior archaeological curator Bly Straube provided an intimate, behind-the-scenes tour of the artifact collection of James Fort. This 90-minute guided program begins with a brief overview of the Jamestown Rediscovery project and offers a rare glimpse of the vault where more than one million artifact recovered during excavations are housed. Straube will highlight important finds and discuss how artifacts tell the story of Jamestown's early years. After the tour, guests will have time to explre the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium where galleries of selected archaeological artifacts are displayed.
Due to limited space and the fragile nature of artifacts in the laboratory, this tour is restricted to 10 people. Children under 16 of age must be accompanied by an adult.
