Laundry Time

Laundry Time
Originally uploaded by rudimyers
Today, we visited Jamestown Settlement. This gentleman was washing his laundry. I expressed surprise at first (stating that it was a woman's job) and then corrected myself noting that there wouldn't have been many (if any) women in the fort. This fellow gave me great information about washing clothes (people paid someone) and a wonderful lesson on how people dyed clothes during this time period.

The boys really enjoyed the fort and climbed all over the ships docked nearby.
