Powhatan Indians will be lecture topic

by Patty Campbell

When the first English colonists established Jamestown in 1607, the Powhatan Indians they encountered were part of a complex society organized around complicated political and religious systems, according to Dr. Martin Gallivan.

And that society had probably already existed for more than 400 years before Jamestown.

Dr. Gallivan will discuss the Powhatan Indians at a lecture and book signing on Sunday, August 6, presented by the Middlesex County Museum and Historical Society.

The event will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Regatta Point Yachting Center, 137 Neptune Lane, Deltaville.
