Week 10: Time, Space, and Place

The Virtual Jamestown project contributes to historical scholarship in several ways. One way is in its incorporation of the latest news regarding the site. As an outlet the site displays the latest historiographic/archival and archaeological research that has either been conducted or projects that are currently searching funding. Another contribution is its diversity of research topics that ranges from biographies of the settlers, their standard of living diet, correspondence, to those concerning the Native tribes, and Africans. Another contribution to scholarship is how the interpretation in scholarship of the site and various groups have changed over time. The site also incorporates the GSI technology in a 3D representation of a Native Village which allows scholars to visualize a space to better understand an analysis finding of the research in a context.
