Experts have uncovered remains at Jamstown - but whose bones are they?

JAMESTOWN, Va. - The ancient thigh bone was that of a robust man, a chap in his 40s, with wear and tear in his joints and a hip socket that showed he had been a horseman and a man of status.

Could these be the remains of the long-lost lord - the savior of the English colony here, the aristocrat who died at sea, and whose body was likely carried to Virginia in a cask of wine?

Was this Thomas West, better known as Lord De La Warr, whose name - Americanized to Delaware - has left its imprint on the national landscape?
