(Dec. 5, 2008)—The Port Tobacco Archaeological Project will present its latest findings at a public meeting held at the Port Tobacco Courthouse on Wednesday, December 17, from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Archaeologist Jim Gibb, managing director of the project, will summarize discoveries made at the old County jail, the 'lost town' of Chandler, and a historic period Indian site that may be the village of Portobac visited by Captain John Smith of Jamestown in 1608.
