It was surprising that Jamestown Survived for a number of reasons. Some examples of why it is surprising are, they drank contaminated water, had to eat dogs, cats,shoes, and anything else that they could find during the starving time. The settlement only had so many people with jobs and then there were men who did not work because they were upper class "gentlemen." If one of a certain type of worker died then the settlement didn't have anyone else to do that job.
