Fascinating first hand account of the excavation of a colonial town in tidewater Virginia. Beautifully written.

I love this book and I dig it out and reread it every couple of years. It reads more like a novel than most archaeology writings and the picture of pre-colonial American life it presents is very different, and much richer, than the one ususally presented in American History.

From the back cover: Martin's Hundred provides a lively narrative of modern ingenuity. We follow a sleuth and his expert staff through all the false starts and shrewd hunches of a thrilling "find". We discover along the way that archaeology today requires the cooperation of an international community of scientists. And ultimately, we augment our understanding of early American agriculture, early American warfare, and the tragic initial contact between Europeans and Indians in colonial times.
