A 3D Look at the Jamestown Burial Site

Though archaeologists may have had exclusive access to the gravesites of four founders of English America found at Jamestown, the Smithsonian Institute is offering the general public an up-close look using 3D technology.

The Smithsonian Natural History Museum and the Jamestown Rediscovery Archaeological Project worked together to identify the remains of the four men found in the chancel of the original Jamestown church.
