What is archaeology?
  • Archaeology is the study of the remains of
    another culture (often one that existed a long
    time ago) in order to learn about life during
    another time.

3
What does an archaeologist do?
  • Archaeologists study artifacts, objects that are
    found by digging in areas where archaeologists
    think other societies once flourished.

4
Lets pretend to be an amateur archaeologist.
  • You are going to look at artifacts from
    Jamestown, Virginia, the first colony the English
    established in the New World in 1607.
  • Archaeologists found the artifacts at the
    Jamestown excavation site in the mid-1990s.

was used for cutting timber and shaping the wood
into smaller pieces suitable for fires and other
purposes.

Artifact 2 Cooking Pot
Archaeologists think that this pot was used in
Jamestown between 1630 and 1645. Its remains, the
handle, were discovered in 1995. It may have been
crafted by one of the first potters working in
Jamestown.

Artifact 3 English Coin
Coins are a particularly useful find for
archaeologists because they are one of the few
artifacts that have a date on them. But in
Jamestown, there was a shortage of change, so
coins often were used for a long period of time.
This means that archaeologists have to be careful
about attributing a specific date to the coin.

Artifact 4 Ring
This ring has been attributed to a colonist
named William Strachey, who was in Jamestown
for only a year, between 1610 and 1611. While
sailing to Jamestown on the Sea of Venture, he
ran into intense storms, which left him
shipwrecked in Bermuda. Apparently his account of
the adventure inspired William Shakespeare to
write the play The Tempest.
