Archaeologists discover Indian artifacts dating back to 8,000 B.C. at site in NY's Adirondacks
From:TheRepublic  Writer:  Date:2013-11-06
New York archaeologists say they've uncovered 10,000-year-old American Indian artifacts at the site of a construction project at a popular state-owned beach in the southern Adirondacks.
 
Officials with the State Museum in Albany say an archaeological dig conducted ahead of a $3 million improvement project at Million Dollar Beach on Lake George has turned up artifacts dating back to about 8,000 B.C.
 
The museum's director and the state's head archaeologist held a news conference at the beach Thursday afternoon to announce that they uncovered thousands of arrowheads, pieces of stone tools and other artifacts at the site
 
The state is repaving the parking lot and access road along the entrance to the beach, located on the southern end of the 32-mile-long lake.
