WRITTEN IN BONE Buried Lives of Jamestown and Colonial Maryland

by | Read by Greg Abbey

Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Walker reports on a forensic anthropology team that studied the skeletal remains, grave sites, and historical records of early settlers of the Chesapeake Bay region. Greg Abbey’s clear delivery and conversational tone enliven this fast-paced work for young people. He is particularly sensitive to providing pauses that give listeners time to reflect on the mysteries that bones and graves reveal about these early people. Abbey captures the suspense of the ongoing project as the myriad historical details provide insights into Colonial history. He ably recounts the various scientific techniques used to discern the social standing, race, and eating habits of those who once were indentured servants, slaves, or leaders in early America.
