Archaeologists hope to learn about French colonists who inhabited shores of Lake Champlain
Old cellar holes, now depressions in the grass, are the most prominent clues that French and later British settlers once occupied the shores of Lake Champlain.

Archaeologists believe there are more clues to be found, so they recruited school teachers and volunteers to dig and sift the dirt for answers.

They've unearthed ceramic, brick and plaster fragments, animal bones and shards of glass that may change what they thought about the French colonists that inhabited the region between 1730 and 1759.

But did they know about. . . .THE MONSTER OF LAKE CHAMPLAIN????
