I hope this program is offered again in 2016. I am very interested in going next year!

Is anyone going on the 9/21 dig?

Rae Walker Jun 12, 2014 at 12:13 AM

Pam: How was the dig?
Pam Allgood Jun 12, 2014 at 07:37 AM

It was great! Learned a lot, met some great folks and found lots of things including a French regiment button from 1781. The visit to the vault in Jamestown was not long enough. They are having a fall session this year.
Rae Walker Jun 12, 2014 at 11:30 PM

That sounds like a successful venture! I may try it next May.

Pam Allgood May 04, 2014 at 09:47 AM

Anyone else signed up for this years program.

Hello, I am looking forward to the Jamestown archaeology program May 12 through 17. Would like to hear a little about other participants in the program. My name is Lynn and this will be my first Roadscholar program. I live in Michigan. Have been wanting to participate in a program such as this forever!!
Erin Teichman Mar 27, 2013 at 08:39 AM

Greetings, Lynn, this will be our third Road Scholar to Jamestown, but our first service learning. My husband is from Michigan, also. See you in May. Erin Teichman
