The archaeological site of Jamestown, the failed English Settlement in Virginia that was established in 1607, is under excavation, and the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities' website detailing its progress is very thorough and provides many different features to tell Jamestown's story. Visitors unfamiliar with the story of Jamestown should start by clicking on "Jamestown's History", near the bottom of the page. Within the text are hyperlinks to concepts that have examples or require more in depth explanation. Visitors can view past exhibits that were at Jamestown, by clicking on "Exhibits". Two digitized exhibits from 1998 and 1999 are both accessible here. The "Findings" section enables visitors to click on a drawing of a map of various sites on the excavation site. Once clicked, a photograph of the actual excavation site will be revealed, along with an explanation of the project's findings. The "Resources" section, mainly for researchers, is not to be missed, as it includes the rather fun "Interactive Exercises" that shows how archaeology is done at the Jamestown site.
