Remains Of American Colonial Leader Found Buried With Catholic Artifact

3 posts in this topic

Jamestown colonist may have been part of a secret Catholic group.

Archaeologists have uncovered an unlikely find at the site of America's oldest Protestant church: a small silver box researchers believe is a Catholic reliquary.

The box, found in Jamestown, Virginia, contains seven fragments of bone and pieces of a lead ampulla, a type of flask used to hold holy water, CT scans revealed.

The discovery raises questions about the roots of Catholicism in the U.S. -- especially at a time in history when anti-Catholic sentiment was high among the majority-Anglican colonists.

Researchers from the Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation and the National Museum of Natural History on Tuesday announced that the reliquary, along with the remains of four of Jamestown's earliest leaders, had been discovered in ruins of the first American Protestant church.  

Remains of the four men -- the Rev. Robert Hunt, Capt. Gabriel Archer, Sir Ferdinando Wainman, and Capt. William West -- were discovered in the church's chancel, an area near the altar typically reserved for clergy. The church was built in 1608, a year after the Jamestown colony was founded.

This is turning out even more interesting than the bodies themselves! So many potential theories of who the people really were, belief-wise. Some think maybe they were Catholics in hiding, as they were driven out of England. Supposedly other artifacts found nearby were brought as "trade goods". But if that were true, they wouldn't have buried them with one of them, reverently, right? Hope they find more clues, fun to watch 8-)

Washington was a Freemason (Knights Templar, an order of the Catholic Church). The dollar bill has a pyramid with the all-seeing eye, occult symbols of the New World Order.
