LAKE GEORGE, New York — Items from a trove of artifacts found at a French and Indian War site in the southern Adirondacks are on display at an upstate New York library.

The Colonial-era artifacts were uncovered in the summers of 2000 and 2001 during archaeology field schools led by David Starbuck of Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.

Starbuck's teams excavated areas of the state-owned Lake George Battlefield Park, on the lake's southern shore. The area was the scene of intensive military activity during a 30-year period from the French and Indian War through the end of the American Revolution.

The artifacts are on display at the Caldwell-Lake George Library in the village of Lake George. Starbuck will speak at the library Saturday afternoon on his digs in Lake George and other Colonial military sites in the region.
