SPROUL, Pa. Workers doing a routine dig at an industrial park near the Bedford-Blair county border found tools and spearheads thousands of years old.
Melissa Diamanti, the senior principal investigator for Archaeological and Historical Consultants of Centre Hall, said the pieces uncovered so far are evidence that people lived in the area some 8,000 to 10,500 years ago.

If yinz haven't finalized your summer vacation travel plans, Bedford Pennsylvania is a nice place to visit for a weekend or daytrip. Additional links to area attractions may also be found at Bedford and the Internet.
Yeah, we went to Bedford once on vay-kay many years ago. Had a blast.
Ping for y'all.
Bumping to check thread later. This one should be interesting.
but what say ye about Bradford? i was at my bro's this past weekend for his daughter's HS grad party and met a woman that i was talking to, and later both xsbro and xsSIL told me she was a bit of a wacko and mentioned she was from BRADFORD as if that connoted something, and i had no idea what. finally they said, they act all INBRED... LOL!
Hey, I've been doing some genealogical research in Allegheny/Armstrong caaahhhhhnties from the 1800s.
Suffice to say, some of those family trees look like piles of spaghetti. Sheesh.
There's nothing wrong with Bradford in general.
my bro was almost transferred there and instead lives in the booming metropolis of Warren, Oh! LOL!
well all of my grandparental forebears came from diff parts of eastern europe, so my eyes being too close together has nothing to do with inbreeding... ; )
In other words, some poor caveman died wondering where he left his cordless Dewalt drill.
Spent many a summer near Bedford. Pretty place.
Any that go be sure to visit the Flgt 93 Memorial in Shanksville...30 miles or so away.
Isn't that called, "narrow between the eyes"?
(Ducking and running)
Both Bedford and Bradford are nice little communities to visit in the summertime.
But you really shouldn't get 'em confused just 'cause they kinda sound alike.
Bedford has a much more moderate climate, even though it's up inna mountains.
Bradford is way up there, almost in New York State, closer to the arctic circle 'nat.
You'll freeze your dupa there in the wintertime.
BTW, how many jobs were lost?
Bedford is a stop on the Turnpike going West, i know it well. Bradford is up north where i haven't been for awhile!
No mention of the earlier finds in the Pittsburgh area (south) of early civilization(s) - also about 15,000 years old. The ealier site is an 'outcropping' or something like that. Thought 'unz would like to know about that one too. There was also something found in the McKees Rocks area, if memory serves.
I have a friend with a farm up there...he has invited me up for deer season...I hope I can find time to go this year.
Was it these guys?
Yep, that's located west of Bedford going towards Pittsurgh.
It's near the area we discussed on this thread: Fort Ligonier offers more bang for the buck
