The Virginia adventure : Roanoke to James Towne : an archaeological and historical odyssey by Ivor Noël Hume( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the two earliest English outposts in Virginia--Roanoke and James Towne--and pieces together revelatory information extrapolated from the shards and postholes of excavations at these sites with contemporary accounts found in journals, letters, and official records of the period. The author illuminates narratives that have a mythic status in our early history : the exploits of Sir Walter Raleigh, Captain John Smith, and Powhatan; the life and death of Pocahontas; and the disappearance of the Roanoke colony. He recounts an excavation at Roanoke where he and his colleagues found the work site of a metallurgist named Joachim Gans, whose findings about the mineral wealth of Virginia helped to convince London merchants that America was a worthy risk. This is an account of high and low adventure, of noble efforts and base impulses, and of the inevitably tragic interactions between Indians and Europeans, marked by greed, treachery, and commonplace savagery on both sides

This edition contains a new preface, and updated references, in addition to the original 102 photographs and line drawings. With a list of forty-three categories, including buttons, cutlery, stoneware, and firearms, collectors and curators of early American artifacts will find this book insightful, informative, and indispensable."--Jacket
Here lies Virginia; an archaeologist's view of colonial life and history by Ivor Noël Hume( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 1994 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chief archaeologist of Colonial Williamsburg shows how the discoveries made at colonial America sites have helped dramatically to fill in the gaps in the documentary history. The author tells the archaeological story of colonial Virginia by describing the excavations at Roanoke Island, Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown, and by revealing to us the treasures of two "lost plantations." Its chief attraction lies in the rich picture it gives of the intimacies of colonial life. The author reveals how the archaeologist marries the clues which the excavations provide to the written historical record to arrive at new levels of understanding about how our colonial ancestors lived

Belzoni : the giant archaeologists love to hate by Ivor Noël Hume( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian son of a barber. A failed hydraulic engineer. A giant who performed feats of strength and agility in the circus. Giovanni Belzoni (1778–1824) was all of these before going on to become one of the most controversial figures in the history of Egyptian archaeology. A man of exceptional size with an ego of comparable proportions, he procured for the British Museum some of its largest and still awe-inspiring treasures. Today, however, the typical museum visitor knows nothing of Belzoni, and many modern archaeologists dismiss him as an ignorant vandal..." --Publisher description
