Important Find Housed in Lindsay Warren Visitor's Center on Roanoke

Once this gorgeous copper necklace flashed in the sun as its wearer proudly exhibited his or her possession.

Then for hundreds of years this beautiful necklace lay hidden in the sand awaiting its place in the sun once more.

Last Fall, the archeology group, First Colony Foundation, with the help of a radar sub contractor, uncovered the copper necklace in the wooded sand dunes not too far from the theater.

It was an exciting time to see it "in situ," said foundation archeologist and co-director Eric Klingelhofer.

The necklace is on display at the Lindsay Warren Visitor's Center located in the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, which encompasses the visitor's center, the Lost Colony and Elizabethan Gardens.

Necklace found on a dig last year on Roanoke.Found near the theater where the Lost Colony Drama has been performed for 72 years.
