Martin's Hundred chronicles the finding and unraveling the mysteries of "Martin's Hundred," one of the earliest European settlements in the New World, near Jamestown, VA. It reads like a detective story as each new clue and artifact is discovered. I enjoyed the book so much, that I was looking forward to visiting the site next year. To my dismay, I read today that the site has been closed for the past two years. Not "cost effective." Sigh. I guess tourists prefer Disney World type settings to "the real thing." Darn.
