Jamestown Gallery Photo Locks and Keys

Handwrought to turn complicated locks on sea chests and trunks, these keys offered settlers in Jamestown's early fort a measure of privacy and security. The 1607 fort had few buildings and no doors with locks. At first, many of the English slept in pits dug along the inside of the palisade, under canvas tarps. Later, the average settler slept in barracks.
