In the Trenches Tours are conducted at 10:00 am on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, April through October.

Join a small inside and up-close group tour of the Lost 1607 James Fort led by Dr. William Kelso, Director of the Jamestown Rediscovery Archaeological Project since 1994. Your reserved place in this special group allows you to come under the ropes to walk the surface of the ground once trod by Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and Queen Elizabeth II -- now the very soil being dug by Historic Jamestowne archaeologists. You share the once in a lifetime "moment of discovery" as a part of America's birthplace sees the first light of day in over 400 years.

Tour members must purchase a tour ticket online in advance or at the Visitor Center by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the tour.

The price is $40, which includes a 7-Day Admission Ticket to Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield.

Tour members must dress according to weather predictions. Reservations and tickets are valid only on the date specified. There will be no refunds unless the tour is canceled by Preservation Virginia.

Tickets can be purchased here.

Meet William Strachey, secretary and recorder at Jamestown, and hear his eyewitness accounts of the settlement's struggle to survive at 10:30 am, 1:00 pm, and 3 pm. Learn of his voyage on the ill-fated Sea Venture, shipwrecked in Bermuda. (His account of the experience was immortalized by Shakespeare in The Tempest.)

Curator's Artifact Tours are conducted at 3:00 pm on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month beginning April 10 through October. Tours start from the Pocahontas statue.

Senior archaeological curator Bly Straube provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes tour of the artifact collection of James Fort. This 90-minute guided program begins with a brief overview of the Jamestown Rediscovery project and offers a rare glimpse of the vault where more than one million artifacts recovered during excavations are housed. Straube will highlight important finds and discuss how artifacts tell the story of Jamestown's early years. After the tour, guests will have time to explore the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium where galleries of selected archaeological artifacts are displayed.

Tour members must purchase a tour ticket online in advance or at the Visitor Center by 2:30 p.m. on the day of the tour. Reservations and tickets are valid only on the date specified. There will be no refunds unless the tour is canceled by Preservation Virginia.

The price is $40, which includes a 7-Day Admission Ticket to Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield.

Note: Due to limited space and the fragile nature of artifacts in the laboratory, this tour is restricted to 10 people. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets can be purchased here.
