We then drove to a re-creation of Plimouth Plantation (yes, spelled differently!).  All the guides “lived” their role … so good to speak to some. Sadly when the Pilgrims landed, they found part of a camp, left by the Wampanoag Indians (who went inland in winter). So, that is where they settled.

Some actual artifacts found on the site –
