While the early days of Jamestown were marred with struggle, conflict, and tragedy, the settlement would survive as the first permanent English colony in North America, from which the seeds of the United States grew. 

Unearth the tumultuous first century of Jamestown with Mark Summers, the public historian for the Jamestown Rediscovery archaeological project.

The Powhatan and the English: 1607–1618

After several failed attempts to colonize North America, the English in 1606 formed the Virginia Company of London and soon after arriving in North America, selected a strategic site for a fort. While idyllic to the English, the chosen land was unoccupied but not unclaimed. The period of conflict with the Powhatan that followed would echo across the continent for centuries.
