Danny Schmidt, an archaeologist at Historic Jamestowne, will lead a free public discussion about his recent findings at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Williamsburg Regional Library Theatre.

Schmidt, Jamestown Rediscovery Project’s senior staff archaeologist, and other archaeologists reached the bottom of a well most likely built in 1609 under the direction of Capt. John Smith. The well contained thousands of artifacts, including a 400-year-old slate tablet deposited after the well water went bad during the starving time of 1609 to 1610.
