The first English settlement in North America was located in Jamestown, Virginia starting in 1607, and its history and legacy are complex. It has long been known that the settlers were Protestant, but recently that history has been called into question with the discovery of what appears to be a Catholic relic. The item — a silver box containing bones believed to be human — was unearthed along with the skeletons of four early, prominent settlers. We learn about the discovery and consider some of the many questions it raises.
