An established Native American settlement as early as 1200 CE, Werowocomoco―located in Gloucester County, Virginia, along the York River―was a secular and sacred seat of power of the present-day Virginia’s Algonquian people, whom the English would call the "Powhatan." The site was rediscovered in 2003. Only about 1 percent of the 50-acre site has been investigated; however, based on archaeological research conducted so far, it appears to be an unprecedented archaeological find for the eastern coastal region of the nation, and its significance to Virginia Indians today and our shared history is without parallel. Generously illustrated and informed by recent scholarship, this latest addition to the National Park Service Handbook series is an engaging and concise history of the site, its rediscovery, and what recent archaeology tells us about Werowocomoco.
