Jewelry finds help illustrate history of Jamestown

The recent discoveries of a small pendant depicting a Virginia native American, and several other pieces of jewelry, will help historians understand more fully the history and life in the Jamestown colony.

The pendant depicts the Indian as "stately," leading experts to believe that he might be Powhatan, father of Pocahontas.

Also found were a gold ring with a skull and the initials "CL," a brass medallion commemorating an induction into the Order of the Garter, and a German brass lion counterweight.
