PBS 'Nova' tackles Pocahontas story
For the answer, "Nova" goes to Jamestown, where remains of the Colonists' fort were found in 1994, and to a farm in Gloucester County, where remains of Werowocomoco, Pocahontas' village, were discovered just a few years ago.
The hour-long documentary also relies on several Richmond area locations for its re-enactments, plus input from the state's Indian tribes, including casting Ashlee Harless of the Rappahannock tribe as the young Pocahontas.
Alternating between re-enactments and archaeological evidence, "Pocahontas Revealed" tells the story of a veteran English adventurer and his relationship with Powhatan, a powerful Indian leader, and one of his daughters, young Pocahontas.
