“To think, almost everyone who has visited Historic Jamestowne until this week has walked about a foot over this horse,” Schmidt said. “That’s the great thing about working here, you never know what’s down there. We could be standing on another horse.”
Or a person. The church graveyard extends that far, Schmidt noted. The ditch in which the horse is buried first turned up 12 years ago, but was not fully excavated.
