Archaeologists Hope to Crack Crown Point Mystery
As the quadricentennial of Lake Champlain approaches, a search is on in New York state to determine the size of a French village site in Crown Point back in the 1700s. Archeologist are on the site now hoping for a major find that will crack a longtime mystery.

For the next two weeks dozens of acres here will be probed, poked and examined by trained archeologists.

It is believed that a village of about 200 homes was located here but after years of looking for evidence of that, very little has been found.
