Jamestowne grew from a commercial outpost of the verge of extinction to a colonist port of entry and administrative center. At one time everything that arrived in America came through this port of entry.
The remnants of what is left are duplications of what is buried beneath them. Archeologists decided to not to leave what was discovered of the foundations of the original colony above ground and instead buried them to protect them from erosion and built duplicates of what was discovered on top of the burial sites. Archeologists are still working the site and there is an amazing amount of treasures found that are on display to see.
