As part of her research efforts for a future book, Cornwell has visited the APVA Jamestown Rediscovery Project on Jamestown Island, Virginia, several times to learn about methods used by archaeologists to excavate and examine burials, including forensic anthropology.
The ten-year, multi-million dollar APVA Jamestown Rediscovery Project was launched in 1994 to identify and interpret the remains of the 1607 James Fort and James Towne.
When archaeologists found remains of the fort in 1996, APVA dispelled the long-held belief that the fort was lost to the James River.
