John Delano  –  “Williamsburg Palisades 1634 & 1648”

What are the Palisades?

Where were the Palisades in Williamsburg?

John Delano will address new research on the location of palisades constructed by English colonists.  John’s research has recently been accepted for publication in the peer-review, professional journal, Historical Archaeology.  The research relied on prior archaeological publications, 17th century land surveys, and a new source of data.  John will describe the locations and purposes of the palisades, as well as the circumstances and incentives that led to their rapid construction. With the exception of some historical archaeologists and historians, these palisades are a little-known aspect of 17th century Virginia.
