Archaeologists start digging at downtown Albany site
Archaeologists have begun excavating a site in downtown Albany, where previous digs have uncovered artifacts from the city's Dutch and English colonial roots.

The archaeological work is being done in Liberty Park, a small slice of green space near the Hudson River a few blocks from the bustling Empire State Plaza.

The park is 1 of the oldest continuous green paces in Albany, and archaeologists say its relatively undisturbed status is expected to yield a wealth of information on the city's 17th and 18th century history.

Not much else there.

UPDATE: Video report on it here.
