   This cross is a reproduction of an artifact found  at the site of the Jamestown Colony near Chesapeake Bay. English colonists landed here 400 years ago on 14 May 1607. By the end of September nearly half of the original  108 colonists had died, mostly of typhoid, dysentery and perhaps salt poisoning.
   The original cross was of a black mineral stone and may have belonged to one of Jamestown’s few Catholics. It speaks of their hope to create a new life in America and to convert the native peoples to the Christian faith. 

Dimensions: 1 3/4" x  3/4"
