History enthusiasts with a penchant for studying pre-Revolutionary War Virginia and Native American history will enjoy two new courses being offered at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) in fall the semester.

Life in Colonial Virginia (HIS 155) is open to anyone with a general interest in colonial Virginia and explores the politics, economics, customs and culture of that era and examines the slave plantation system. Taught by TNCC Adjunct History Professor Cassandra Farrell, the three-credit class meets Tuesdays from 7 – 9:45 p.m. at the Historic Triangle campus in Williamsburg. “This course adds depth to [Thomas Nelson’s] current curriculum on United States History. It is a thematic and topical survey of life in colonial Virginia from the earliest inhabitants and European settlements to the end of the Revolutionary era,” said Farrell.
