Werowocomoco and Fairfield Plantation: Rediscovering the Forgotten Landscapes of Gloucester County

Presenter: 
David Brown and Thane Harpole
Duration: 
(01:08:01)

On April 2, 2009, David Brown and Thane Harpole delivered this lecture entitled “Werowocomoco and Fairfield Plantation: Rediscovering the Forgotten Landscapes of Gloucester County.”

The excitement of discovering lost landscapes, including the Burwell family’s ancestral home and the nearby village of Powhatan and Pocahontas, has resulted in the resurgence of support for historic preservation in the Middle Peninsula. David Brown and Thane Harpole described these activities to illustrate everyday life in colonial Virginia and to show how our interpretations of it influence our own day. Brown and Harpole are archaeologists, co-directors of the Fairfield Foundation, and founding members of the Werowocomoco Research Group.
