PHILADELPHIA - Archaeologists, who are working at the site of the future SugarHouse casino at the Delaware River, have found hundreds of artifacts dating from 1500 B.C. The discoveries include more than a dozen small tools and a fire pit.

Mark Shaffer, a preservation specialist for the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, says the American Indian artifacts collected over the past several weeks have doubled the total number gathered at the site since 2007.

Construction of the SugarHouse Casinos is already underway. The excavation of this area is expected to be completed soon, and the archeologists will move on to search for a British fort believed to be under what was once Penn Street.

This excavation site will eventually become a parking lot for the casino.
