Digging Up Bones and Revolutionary History at the Benjamin Franklin House

Author: Darcy Foster

Summer Study Abroad scholarship 2017 - Women’s International Club Scholarship (London, England)

My good fortune was to intern for six weeks at the lodger house in central London where he lived. The Benjamin Franklin House is the world's only remaining Franklin residence and was converted into a museum, in 2006, on the 300th anniversary of his birth.
