Earlier this month, I wrote about the archaeological dig that was underway in Lake George’s Battlefield Park where a team of students were searching for clues about the Battle of Lake George. I concluded that article by citing archaeologist and team leader David Starbuck’s certainty that something significant would be uncovered by the time the dig was over, and as it turns out, Starbuck was right.
The Associated Press reported that the four dozen volunteers and students uncovered large stone walls that were presumably part of Fort George, a fortification that the British started in the late 1700’s, but never completed. The walls that were discovered are approximately 6 feet tall and as much as 5 feet thick, and date back to 1759.
