ID : 1329   
« back to classes page
New research by John Delano on the location of palisades constructed by English colonists has recently been accepted for publication
in the peer-reviewed professional journal, Historical Archaeology. The research relied on prior archaeological publications, 17th century
land surveys, and a new source of data. This lecture will describe the locations and purposes of the palisades, as well as the
circumstances and incentives that led to their rapid construction. With the exception of historical archaeologists and historians, these
palisades are a little-known aspect of 17th century Virginia.
