about Jamestown Settlement:
Outdoors, visitors can board replicas of the three ships that sailed from England to Virginia in 1607, explore life-size re-creations of the colonists' fort and a Powhatan village, and tour a riverfront discovery area to learn about European, Powhatan, and African economic activities associated with water.
Costumed historical interpreters describe and demonstrate daily life in the early 17th century and visitors can get hands on, scraping out a tree trunk to make a Powhatan canoe, making a map, working at a carpenter's bench, and examining trade items to learn about the objects considered valuable by each culture.
