On May 13, 1607, three small English ships - the Susan Constant, the Godspeed and the Discovery - approached a spit of shore at what was soon named Jamestown, the manifestation of England's determination to establish a permanent settlement in the New World. Today, Jamestown is one of three locations - along with Williamsburg and Yorktown - that comprise the Historic Triangle of Colonial Virginia, and it is home to two heritage tourism sites related to the original fort and town: Historic Jamestowne, the archaeological site on the island a cooperative effort of Jamestown National Historic Site, part of the Colonial National Historical Park, and Preservation Virginia, formerly the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA); and Jamestown Settlement, a living history site and museum, originally Jamestown Festival Park, built for the celebration of the semiseptcentennial (350th) anniversary and operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation in conjunction with the Commonwealth of Virginia. Paperback, 96 pages.
