Artifacts from Lake George dig going on display

LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) Some of the thousands of artifacts uncovered during an archaeological dig in the southern Adirondacks are going on display this summer.

Archaeologists started excavations last year near the parking lot at the state-owned Million Dollar Beach on Lake George ahead of a road construction project. They've found thousands of arrowheads, pieces of stone tools and other artifacts dating back to about 8,000 B.C.

The area along Lake George's southern shore was used by Native Americans for hunting and fishing for thousands of years.

The New York State Museum in Albany is putting some of the artifacts on public display this summer at the Lake George Visitors Center in the heart of the popular tourist village.

Fourth-grade students in Lake George are getting a look at the dig site and artifacts Friday.
