Secrets of the Dead: Jamestown's Dark Winter

About the Show

Archaeologists excavating the site of an early American colony discover the remains of a young woman, dating back to 1609. She was one of the early settlers from England who sought to establish a thriving settlement but, as winter fell, the colony quickly crumbled and the Powhatan Indians were unwilling to help, killing anyone who ventured outside the fort. Now, a cellar excavation has uncovered bone fragments belonging to this adolescent female which reveal her extraordinary story.
