(music)

voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

almost four hundred years ago, three british ships loaded with passengers and supplies sailed across the atlantic ocean. the passengers settled on the edge of the james river in sixteen-oh-seven. they immediately began building what was to become england's first permanent settlement in america. today, sarah long and i tell the story of jamestown, virginia.

(music)

voice two:

unlike the first colonists on jamestown island, people today arrive by car. as they drive up, visitors can either stop at the jamestown settlement or they can see the very place where the colonists first settled on jamestown island.

the jamestown settlement is a re-created version of the colony and a nearby powhatan indian village. visitors can see what life was like in the colony almost four hundred years ago. the people who work at the settlement speak english the way people did in the seventeenth century. they also wear clothes from that time period and fire musket guns from colonial days. visitors can see the kind of food the settlers ate, the games they played and the way they lived.
