Abstract

Archeologist Dr. Jeffrey Brain at the Peabody Essex Museum stumbled on the site of Maine's ancient Popham Colony in 1990 and believes he found construction evidence of the ship, "Virginia," built in 1607 and 1608. Susan McChesney is executive director of the Maine's First Ship project, which is raising funds to reconstruct the pinnace "Virginia." The project has partnered with the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath and expects to have the ship docked and launched there.
