Construction workers building a rotary in Massachusetts uncover remains of an ancient village 

While working to dig out space for a new traffic roundabout, construction workers in the small Massachusetts town of Northampton made a surprising discovery.

Instead of dirt and rocks they found spearheads and stone tools dating as far back as 8,000 to 10,000 years, a period of North American history about which relatively little is known.

…Over the course of the two-year dig, the archaeologists made a number of promising discoveries. In addition to the stone tools and spearheads, they found knives, fire pits, and raspberry and acorn seeds, which had been preserved by charring.
