"In the spring of 1607, the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery landed a group of settlers in Virginia to build what became America's first permanent English colony -- a place dogged by misfortune and tragedy. In this program, noted archaeologist William Kelso and a team of experts turn the long-accepted story of Jamestown upside down as they uncover clues to what really happened on James Island nearly 400 years ago. Dramatizations of key events are interwoven with details of the excavation that is bringing to light a tale of political infighting and assasination that had lain buried for centuries"--Container.
