Burials at James Fort

Burials at James Fort

This photo, taken in July of 2012, is of burial sites within the original James Fort of the Virginia colony. These burials are believed to have occurred circa 1607. Until recently, most historians thought that the site of the original fort was now beneath the James River. But archaeologists recently discovered parts of the 3 outer walls of the fort, as well as graves and other structures that were located within the fort.
