"JAMESTOWN, Va. ‹ The skeleton was beautifully laid out in a formal
English-style burial, hands at the sides, palms down, the body probably
pinned up in a shroud.

The arms, legs, and ribs were largely intact. But the skull, which was
crucial, was gone.

So when Mary Anna Hartley, picking at the dirt in the bottom of the
400-year-old grave stumbled on the next best thing, she yelled, ³Teeth!²

David M. Givens, director of archaeology at Jamestown Rediscovery,
standing not far away, punched his right fist into his left hand, and
exulted, ³Teeth.²

This was Sunday, and a breakthrough in the excavation this week of a
grave believed to be that of Sir George Yeardley, who oversaw the first
representative government assembly in English America, and was also one
of history¹s first U.S. slaveholders.?
