Archeological dig prepares for Three Island Park picnic shelter construction
Fish vertebrae and turtle bones, bits of charcoal and shards of pottery - all evidence the Three Island Park picnic area has been in use for something like 1,000 years.

Terrell and Jammi Ludwig, field technician with Two Pines, began a five-day dig Monday prior to Beltrami County's improvements at the Three Island Park picnic grounds.
