Archaeology of the 1607 Popham Colony site repeatedly shows those colonists as capable and well-organized. Constructing and operating the small, rugged VIRGINIA exemplifies their abilities with two documented Atlantic crossings—a fine start to Maine’s shipbuilding tradition. Combining knowledge of the colony with a variety of surviving English shipbuilding documentation, this book features an in-context design for reconstructing VIRGINIA for those interested in the history and skills that made it happen.
