Film Description:The Jamestown Fort, built in 1607, was the beginning of the first permanent British settlement in what is now the United States. Abandoned after its inhabitants relocated around 1624, the fort was believed to be lost forever until its rediscovery in 1994. Dr. Robert L. Schuyler, Associate Curator, Historical Archaeology Section, Penn Museum, discusses the missing years and the spectacular findings recently made in the fort's long history.
