Science & Research
Archeology has been a vital component of our understanding of the rich history at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. Since the late 1800s, archeologists have made numerous discoveries on site, from the location of the earthen fort in 1947 to the recovery of pottery shards in 2016.
Without the dedicated work of archeologists at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, it would be even more difficult to tell the stories of the English colonists and Algonquian indians who walked these grounds over 400 years ago.
