BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Archaeology buffs are invited to watch diggers uncovering history this summer on the Buffalo waterfront.

A group of archaeologists and University at Buffalo graduate students is working near a construction site along Main Street at Canalside. They hope to uncover artifacts dating back to Buffalo's 18th century heyday as the terminus of the Erie Canal.

A selection of artifacts from previous digs is on display at the site. They include bottles, household items, crockery, dolls, and a variety of industrial and maritime tools.

Visitors can watch the work from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 13, 17, 27, and 31; and Aug. 7, 10, and 21.
