Layers of the Past: Discoveries at Flowerdew HundredThe recorded history of Flowerdew Hundred begins in 1618, when the Virginia Company of London granted George Yeardley a thousand acres on the James River, but as early as ten thousand years ago, successive groups of Virginia Indians began to occupy the site. English colonists, enslaved African Americans, Union soldiers, and countless others later followed—each group leaving behind evidence of their daily lives. Over the past several decades, a clearer picture of Virginia’s early inhabitants and their ways of life has emerged through archaeological excavations at this property. This exhibition features fascinating artifacts and new ways of thinking about one of Virginia’s most interesting archaeological sites.Explore the exhibit »
The exhibition is on view from October 2012 through July 2013 in the main gallery of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.
