Evidence that Prisoners in Newgate Prison transported to Virginia

Newgate PrisonThe past is not too far afield. The anciently weathered remains of a 300-year old ship buried in Alexandria, Virginia (old town) was first noticed in December of 2015 at the construction site for a new hotel. This vessel is believed to have been built in Massachusetts after 1741 and traveled to the Virginia coast. As time passed, this ship wreck was used as landfill. Three additional vessels were later discovered in the area, all buried just feet away from one another. The artifacts included jewelry, tokens from Newgate Prison in London and Spanish and Irish coins.
