Summary
1607 vividly tells the story of the founding of Jamestown, recounting the situation of the original Indian inhabitants, the arrival of the British settlers 400 years ago, the building of the town, and modern excavations at the site. Along the way, we meet such familiar figures as King James, John Smith, and Pocahontas. We also come across strange episodes of cannibalism and skullduggery, heroism and romantic love. The book is a compilation of articles from Colonial Williamsburg magazine
