A Trip Through Jamestown


I wanted to pass along some exciting information about the Virtual Jamestown project. Ever since its 400th anniversary celebration, interest in the first successful English colony has been growing by leaps and bounds. Thankfully, additional funding has helped to enhance the public's perception and interest in colonial America's historical roots.

One of the many projects to improve the public's knowledge of and interest in colonial America is the Virtual Jamestown Project. The initial 3-D experience (which is in its infancy) can be seen by clicking here. Enjoy a virtual tour of the Jamestown fortifications, not to mention a few of its surroundings. Again, this virtual tour is only a prototype of what is to come. The completed virtual Jamestown tour will be an intimate and in-depth view of the colony. But for now, take a look at the prototype. Also, check out the Virtual Jameston Project website for additional resources.

Brad, that is just the tip of the iceberg on Jamestown resources. If anyone is interested I can make a post with other links and titles. Since the 400th anniverasry in 2007 the number of resources for teachers and the public on Jamestown have increased almost exponentially.
