Description
Join author Sally M. Walker as she works alongside scientists investigating colonial-era graves near Jamestown, Virginia: a teenage boy, a ship's captain, an indentured servant, a colonial official and his family, and an enslaved African girl. All are reaching beyond the grave to tell us their stories, which are written in bone.



About the Author

Her meticulous research and stirring storytelling in Secrets of a Civil War Submarine: Solving the Mysteries of the H. L. Hunley won her the prestigious Robert F.

In Written in Bone, she brings that same skill and scholarship to uncover the stories of people from the colonial era.
