Delve into Virginia society, from the establishment of the first successful British outpost at Jamestown in 1607 through the end of British rule by Washington's defeat of Lord Cornwallis only a few miles away at Yorktown in 1781. Through the lens of archaeology, discover -- or rediscover -- Jamestown. Then embark on a scholarly journey through Virginia's "Historic Triangle" of Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown. Learn about the development of plantation society, slavery, the role of religion, and events leading to the Siege of Yorktown. Background lectures prepare you for field trips. You'll also enjoy a unique tavern dining experience and two evenings of entertainment. Ticket to Colonial Williamsburg included!
