America's 'lost leaders' unearthed

  • 30/07/2015

A slice of American history has been brought to light thanks to archaeologists in Jamestown, Virginia.

Two Captains, a Knight and a Cleric have been unearthed and are telling some of the secrets of the first permanent English settlement.

Lead Jamestown archaeologist Bill Kelso and his team spent two weeks excavating the bones.

"We found the evidence of lost leaders of the beginning of the colony," he says.

They were part of Great Britain's upper class as revealed by their burial inside what had been the 1607 church, and by signs of prestige.
