Possible Remains of Bartholomew Gosnold

Beverley "Bly" Straube and William Kelso, senior archaeological curator and director of research and interpretation at Historic Jamestown, discuss a casket found at Jamestown in 2003 that possibly contained the remains of Captain Bartholomew Gosnold, an underappreciated cofounder of the Jamestown colony. Though a DNA test was inconclusive, Straube and Kelso point to other supporting evidence that the well-preserved skeleton is indeed Gosnold. This segment by reporter Nancy Marshall-Genzer originally aired during the week of November 11, 2005, on With Good Reason, a radio program produced by Virginia Humanities.
