LAKE GEORGE, N.Y.
New York archaeologists say they've uncovered 10,000-year-old American Indian artifacts at the site of an improvement project at a popular state-owned beach in the southern Adirondacks.
The find includes thousands of arrowheads and pieces of stone tools. It makes the site among the earliest known occupied locations in New York state.
The museum's director and the state's head archaeologist announced the findings at a news conference at the beach Thursday.
The state is repaving the parking lot and access road along the beach entrance, located on the southern end of the 32-mile-long lake.
