Rediscovering Jamestown: A New Way to Explore James Fort Virtually

Retention of a number of staff to create an interactive virtual tour related to the history and archaeology of James Fort.

This project will involve designing and populating a virtual tour portal for exploring the rich resources related to the history and archaeology of Jamestown, the first successful English settlement in North America. Virtual tours of the archaeological site of James Fort and the Archaearium Museum will be told through a series of videos connected together in an interactive, online map. One tour will weave together the history of the settlement with how archaeological research has informed our understanding of the site. The other will be presented from the perspective of Anas Todkill, one of Jamestown’s important early settlers who was a comrade of Captain John Smith. Relevant historical information, images, artifacts, and other videos will be linked to each tour topic, enabling the public and students to explore further. The education team will also develop lesson plans for using the portal in elementary as well as middle/high school classrooms.
