The excavation of 400-year-old graves from America’s first permanent English settlement has opened a rare window into the country’s early years. Archaeologists on Tuesday announced their discovery of four skeletons they say belonged to early leaders in Jamestown, Va. One was the colony’s first pastor, and the others a British knight and two military captains.
