(Fox News) – High school students on an archaeology field trip helped discover
a 6,000-year-old stone ax head at George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate.

Roughly 7 inches long and 3 inches wide, the ax would have been an important
part of the Native American tool kit in the fourth millennia B.C, according to
experts. Famous as the home of one of America’s founding fathers, the
Virginia estate also offers a fascinating glimpse into the nation’s earlier
history. The artifact is now one of more than 50,000 artifacts found on the
Mount Vernon estate.
