Speaker: Dr. William M. Kelso
Director of Archaeology
Jamestown Rediscovery Project
"James Fort - Lost and Found"
Dr. Kelso , a Chicago native, is the "American archaeologist who directs the Jamestown Rediscovery Project, an organized effort to uncover and preserve artifacts from the Jamestown Colony, the first permanent English settlement in North America." So prominent is Dr. Kelso in the area of his expertise that the foregoing is the description of his work from Britannica Online Encyclopedia. Beginning in historical archaeology more than thirty years before his association with the Preservation Virginia Jamestown Rediscovery archaeological project, he was director of archaeology at Colonial Williamsburg's Carter's Grove, Monticello and Poplar Forest. He also served as commissioner of archaeology for the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission. Dr. Kelso received an M.A. from the College of William & Mary, and a Ph.D from Emory University. Initially hired by APVA, now Preservation Virginia, to find James Fort on Jamestown Island, this began a more than ten year search for the specific site. Recently, there have been exciting new additions to knowledge coming from the excavations n which he has participated and directed. It is a privilege to hear about these new finds from the person whose efforts made these discoveries possible.
