Unfortunately, any good news about reducing the pandemic restrictions is coming too late to plan a face-to-face gathering for our customary major June event.
First California Company will hold its 2021 Annual meeting virtually on Saturday, June 5 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada.) We will hear from David M. Givens, Director of Archaeology at Jamestowne Rediscovery, who succeeded the renowned Bill Kelso on his recent retirement.Dave joined the Rediscovery archeological team early on and has been a major contributor to many of its extraordinary finds. He was the recipient of the 2014 Jamestown Society Fellowship. He will review the Rediscovery team’s latest work – the excavations in the 1617 church where Virginia’s first General Assembly met in 1619 and their efforts to interpret that space for our Nation’s 400th anniversary.
The meeting will be held on Zoom. For more information, an invitation and access instructions, please contact Lieutenant Governor Norma Keating at
As benefits our Society, Jamestowne Rediscovery has sharpened and enlarged its focus on education with this posting.
