The Elucidating Grannies Follow Whispering Bones to Historic Jamestown
The Elucidating Grannies chose Jamestown as the first stop on our exploration of Colonial National Historical Park in Williamsburg, Virginia. The whisper of bones lured us there.
British colonists erected the fort on the James River in 1607, making it the first permanent British settlement in North America. It was the logical first step on our quest to understand the nation’s colonial roots.
But Liz and I also thought Jamestown would pique the interest of our grandkids–Eva, Abby, and Aydan. Because of research I’d done for my book Tomb Raiders: Real Tales of Grave Robberies, I knew Jamestown’s bones had a grisly story to tell about desperate people trying to survive in a desperate time.
