In 1984, "Historical Archeology at Jamestown-A Legacy" was written, produced and directed by the presenter as part of a Masters thesis in Anthropology at the College of William and Mary in Virginia.  Preparation for the project included documentary research, correspondence with people who had worked at Jamestown in the past, preparation of interview questions, writing a grant application to the college for videotape, and arrangements to use the video equipment there to edit the interviews into a documentary.  The founders of the Society for Historical Archeology, John L. Cotter and J.C. Harrington were among the interviewees.  The video will be shown at the 2017 SHA meeting and copies of the Master’s thesis will be available.
