Archaeologists plan to return to a state park in the southern Adirondacks where they've uncovered Native American artifacts dating back thousands of years.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that the search for artifacts in the picnic area adjacent to the parking lot at Million Dollar Beach on Lake George will resume this spring.

State Museum officials announced last October that archaeologists had uncovered thousands of pieces of tools, weapons and other artifacts dating back to the Archaic Period when nomadic tribes hunted and fished along the lake's southern end.

The artifacts were uncovered prior to a project to repave the beach's access road and parking lot. The access road is scheduled for repaving this spring while the parking lot will be repaved after Labor Day.
