Archaeology Magazine Honors the Jamestown Church Among the Top Ten Discoveries of 2010

In its online January/February 2011 edition of Archeology, the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) has honored Bill Kelso and the Jamestowne Rediscovery Project for its unearthing of the original 1608 church at Jamestowne as one of the Top 10 Discoveries of 2010 (see our reports of this discovery beginning August 27 up through October 26). The commentary includes this Kelso quote: “Now we can actually point to the spot where Pocahontas got married. How often does something like that happen in archaeology?”

The AIA is North America's oldest and largest organization devoted to the world of archaeology. The Institute is a nonprofit group founded in 1879 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1906.
