Lay of the Land
1607: Before Jamestown
When the English arrived in 1607, more than 15,000 Indians lived around Chesapeake Bay, most ruled by Chief Powhatan.

1670: After Settlement
Within 60 years, English settlers had pushed the Indians off the most fertile waterfront land. Only 2,000 Indians remained.
