Pocahontas Revealed

About the Show

NOVA: On the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, science is revealing the truth behind the myth surrounding swashbuckling settler John Smith and Pocahontas, the daughter of Chief Powhatan. Virginia archaeologists have been excavating the site of Powhatan's capital, Werowocomoco. Their findings reveal the Native American side of the Jamestown story, and provide a fascinating new perspective on the colonists' inevitably one-sided accounts of their sometime allies and adversaries.
