Sweet Discourse: The Churches at Jamestown
The fifth in the series of presentations sponsored by the Bruton Guides Ministry on places and events related to the history of Bruton Parish will be held on Wednesday, January 17, at 3pm at the Parish House. Please note the earlier time to accommodate those who do not care to drive at night.
    In 2010, Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists discovered the site of the earliest known Protestant church in North America. In the chancel at the east end of the building, archaeologists found the graves of four distinguished citizens, including the Rev’d Robert Hunt, the first Anglican priest in the English New World. Hear the story of how historical, archaeological, scientific, and forensic specialists worked together to identify the four leaders and reveal the mysterious silver box found at the grave of one of them.
    Now Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists are examining the area in and around the 20th-century Memorial Church to look for evidence of two other early churches constructed c. 1617 and c. 1640 at the same location.
    The program will be presented by Danny Schmidt, Senior Staff Archaeologist, and Mark Summers, Manager of Educational Programs at Jamestown Rediscovery.
    All Bruton members are welcome to bring their neighbors and friends to the series!
