What People are Saying About This

"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 on an international community of scientists. And ultimately, we augment out understanding of early American agriculture, early American warfare, and the tragic initial contact between Europeans and Italians in colonial times." -- Michael Kammen, author of People of Paradox

an interesting, informative, and occasionally amusing account of the discovery of a 17th century Virginia town destroyed in the Indian uprising of 1622. The process used by the archeologist/author in putting together the story of Martin's Hundred is fascinating
