ABSTRACT
The article reports that a team of scientists in Oregon have searched the ground in search of clues about famous U.S. explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Scientists were investigating the area around a fort built by the explorers during their journey across the U.S. several years ago. The explorers were hired by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson to explore Louisiana Territory. Scientists will use the information that they can gather to build a replica of Fort Clatsop.
