Archaeologist Pursued Jamestown Curiosity
Three decades after visiting the site of North America's first permanent English settlement, Kelso returned as an archaeologist and discovered evidence of the fort's remains. He and his team have gone on to discover hundreds of thousands of 17th century artifacts.
Today, as Virginia prepares to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the settlement, Kelso is chief archaeologist of the site and one of the experts consulted during the making of ''The New World,'' the $30 million Hollywood epic starring Colin Farrell that opens nationwide Jan. 13.
