“Werowocomoco: Seat of Power”
In “Werowocomoco: Seat of Power,” Martin D. Gallivan, guest curator of the Jamestown Settlement special exhibition, discusses the archaeological investigations at Werowocomoco that have uncovered evidence of interaction with Jamestown’s colonists and the ways that the Powhatan Indians constructed a powerful, central place in Tidewater Virginia from A.D. 1200 through 1607.
Dr. Gallivan, College of William and Mary associate professor of anthropology, has been involved in the archaeological research at the Gloucester County site since 2003 as part of the Werowocomoco Research Group and has written numerous academic articles on the findings. He received a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia.
