The Virginia Adventure  Roanoke to James Towne: An Archaeological and Historical Odyssey, Hume, Ivor Noel
16 Hume, Ivor Noel The Virginia Adventure Roanoke to James Towne: An Archaeological and Historical Odyssey
Knopf 1994 0394564464 / 9780394564463 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by author on bookplate. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. For thirty-five years, as writer, lecturer, and chief archaeologist at Colonial Williamsburg, Ivor Noel Hume has enlivened for us the material culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century America. After his warmly praised book Martin's Hundred, he now turns to the two earliest English outposts in Virginia -- Roanoke and James Towne -- and pieces together revelatory information extrapolated from the shards and postholes of excavations at these sites with contemporary accounts found in journals, letters, and official records of the period. He illuminates narratives that have a mythic status in our early history: the exploits of Sir Walter Ralegh, Captain John Smith, and Powhatan; the life and death of Pocahontas; and the disappearance of the Roanoke colony. He recounts a recent important excavation at Roanoke where he and his colleagues found the work site of a metallurgist named Joachim Gans, whose findings about the mineral wealth of Virginia helped to convince London merchants that America was a worthy risk This is an account of high and low adventure, of noble efforts and base impulses, and of the inevitably tragic interactions between Indians and Europeans, marked by greed, treachery, and commonplace savagery on both sides. The astonishment of this history is that despite bad luck, bad management, and bad blood, the English presence in America persisted and the Virginia settlements survived as the birthplace of a country founded on English law and language.

With clarity, authority, and elegant wit, Noel Hume has enhanced our understanding of the historical forces and principal players behind England's first perilous ventures into the New World, and proved again that he is without a doubt one of the great interpreters of our early colonial past. ; 1.5 x 9.3 x 6.4 Inches; 491 pages; For thirty-five years, as writer, lecturer, and chief archaeologist at Colonial Williamsburg, Ivor Noel Hume has enlivened for us the material culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century America.

Kingsmill Plantations, 1619-1800  Archaeology of Country Life in Colonial Virginia, Kelso, William M.
20 Kelso, William M. Kingsmill Plantations, 1619-1800 Archaeology of Country Life in Colonial Virginia
Academic Pr 1984 0124034802 / 9780124034808 First Edition; Various Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed bookplate. Book looks new. In 1971 William Kelso happened almost by chance on an archaeological find that would open a new door on the rural history of colonial Tidewater Virginia. Erosion had revealed a brick well shaft in a cliff on the James River; above this was an earthen fort and, a bit farther downriver, the remains of a plantation manor. These would be the first of many intriguing discoveries to be made in the area known as Kingsmill. Though the land's owners agreed to cooperate with, and even fund, an archaeological study of the area, the excavation schedule would have to keep one step ahead of the work on a major residential development. For centuries, time had stood still in Kingsmill; now the clock was suddenly ticking.

'Kingsmill Plantations,' Kelso's first-hand account of a great feat of rescue archaeology, covers a three-year period and the excavation of 15 separate sites. The various properties dated as far back as 1619 -- placing them among the earliest of American settlements -- and continued up through the 18th century. Because the division of labor on the Kingsmill plantations was typical of the era, the settlement could provide an invaluable microcosmic view of colonial Virginia. Meticulous study of the structures and their surroundings -- including faunal analyses and inventories of entire households -- allowed Kelso and his colleagues to construct a remarkably detailed picture of life in Kingsmill over the course of nearly 200 years.

At once scholarly and highly readable, 'Kingsmill Plantations' speaks to both expert and amateur. An extensive collection of illustrations -- including maps, diagrams, and contemporary and archival photographs -- makes the narrative especially vivid. ; Studies in Historical Archaeology; 0.75 x 9.75 x 8 Inches; 236 pages; Signed by Author
