22601.  An artist's rendering of Wolstenholme Towne during its construction around 1620.  Early digging revealed the site of a cottage (above, lower left) a company compound including a longhouse and a store, at center, and beyond, a palisaded fort. To that scene has been added the largest single building -the company barn, at upper left.  There the colonists probably stored their exports of tobacco and lumber prior to shipping them to England. The position of the barn add weight to the belief that the town plan paralleled a design used by English colonists in Ireland during the same period.
