    Archaeologists have pinpointed what they think is the exact spot where the Pilgrims lived in the years after landing in the New World.

    Every American schoolchild knows the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in 1620, but exactly where has been elusive.

    Archaeologists from the University of Massachusetts Boston tell The Boston Globe they have discovered what is believed to be part of the original settlement, based on the discovery of a calf's bones, musket balls, ceramics and brownish soil where a wooden post once stood.

    UMass Boston professor David Landon says the discoveries are compelling evidence that a sliver of the original settlement existed at what's known as Burial Hill.
