Historic Jamestown Museum.


Through with our outdoor touring of the site….




We found the museum.




An odd looking building we were assured was totally green.

Although it looked pretty brown to me.

Although I called it a museum?

They call it an Archaearium.




Technically that means an archeological excavation covered by a glass building.

Which it was.




Because the remains of the first government building was literally under your feet.




The exhibits were well done and history rich.




And it shouldn’t surprise you that we spent a good couple of hours here.




They’ve apparently taken a good deal of flack over the display of actual remains.




But to be honest, it was fascinating.




Granted if JR was my 10th great grandfather I might feel differently….




I mean, it doesn’t look like he died peacefully.




But then again, this poor fellow had to be in dire need of some Excedrin as well.




Early surgical instruments?




Or the Marquis De Sade’s toy chest?

Tough call.




I’m guessing this poor soul didn’t get any Novocain either.



Of course back in the day…. this pointy little piece of metal?








Not your average Q Tip.




And if you remember my post from yesterday about the hardships the settlers endured?




This 14 year old girl was eaten.




It doesn’t get much harder than that.

  1. Our county has proposed to turn my favorite bar, The Pit, into a living museum. Visitor will observe the happenings from behind a 2″ panel of protective glass.

    “OMG! I never imagined people could live like that?”

    “Why are there no warning for children?”

    “Why are there no warnings for dogs? Mine just barfed.”

  2. So, technically I guess you included a food photo. I’m not sure in what order the ear picker should fulfill all its uses. Fingernails should be last, but do I want mouth germs in my ear or ear germs in my mouth? That’s the problem with multi-purpose tools.
