Archeologists dig up Washington's boyhood home
George Washington's boyhood home has finally been excavated in a project that may shed light on the formative years of the first U.S. president, archeologists said on Wednesday.

They say they will try to reconstruct the clapboard farmhouse, where the family moved in 1738, when Washington was 6 years old.

Earlier attempts to find the remains of the house at Ferry Farm, near Fredericksburg, Virginia had failed.
