Anne Poole (at left), Research Director,  and I are screening for artifacts in the photo at one of our excavation sites.  Anne and I seldom are actually able to do something together at the same time, as there are lots of logistics and challenges to work on every minute of every dig with 20-40 people in the field.  Please note that my t-shirt says “Well behaved women seldom make history.”  It’s my motto, and I’ve never been accused of being well behaved!

Thanks everyone for your participation and interest.  Let’s make 2013 a great year with lots of research and let’s find those colonists!!

  1. Thank you. You are my hero for teaching and helping us with the interesting but complicated science of DNA.

  2. Excellent! While it appears the author doesn’t cover the Lost Colony (I’m only half way through), highly recommended reading is a new book by professor Bernard Bailyn, “The Barbarous Years”, that covers the peopling of British North America from 1600 to 1675. He provides considerable details on the individuals and families that settled the new colonies from Viriginia north to New England. There are a whole lot of names covered that may be of interest to those searching genealogies that far back.

  3. Love your dedication and spirit. Need more like you. May you soon locate a tangible piece of the past in your Lost Colony quest.
    And I would love to have your input on my creative work on The Lost Colony and Lumbee, The Second Society.
