[ October 19th 2006 ]

A team of archaeologists have unearthed evidence of an early stately home while excavating a stretch of York River's north bank in the Jenkins Neck community of Gloucester County, reports Virginia Daily Press. A series of post holes were discovered hidden under black soil close to the waters edge.

According to the paper, this is the second building they have confirmed at the site. They found the footprint of the first building during excavations in 1997. The building has been dated around the 1600s.

Thane Harpole, leading the excavation, said the site is significant because it contains evidence of some of the earliest human settlements in Gloucester. Located in a layer beneath that containing the 1600s artefacts is evidence of Indians of the Middle to Late Woodland periods, which date from 200-900 A.D.
