Gloucester Point has been the subject of numerous archaeological investigations over the last two decades. Overlapping historic-period occupations include the abandoned site of Gloucester Town and fortifications from the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Results of survey, evaluation, and data recovery at sites on the campus of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science are detailed in this report. Excavation results from both military and domestic sites are presented. Results from previous work and the current project are synthesized in a sequence of maps illustrating four centuries of settlement at Gloucester Point.
