Jamestown - From England to Virginia

by  Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation

Program image

Why did England decide to send settlers to Virginia? What did they hope to gain,
and who were the people who decided to sail to an unknown future? By examining
reproduction artifacts and other primary sources, students will answer these
and other questions as they discover why the English established Jamestown and
why Englishmen would travel across the Atlantic to an unfamiliar land. We’ll
examine early government, the English interactions with the Powhatan Indians,
and the arrival of the first Africans to British North America.
