Prehistoric Artifacts Discovered at Lake Waconia Regional Park
Scientists recently announced prehistoric artifacts have been discovered at Lake Waconia Regional Park.
According to the Star Tribune, scientists commissioned to study Lake Waconia Regional Park’s Coney Island last fall discovered prehistoric artifacts on the former resort land. As a result, another dig has been commissioned for April.
The first dig analysis began last October when Carver County hired a research firm to study the area, the report said. Workers extracted pottery shards, stone flakes and projectile points from 310 sites on the 33-acre island.
The Carver County Historical Society will serve as the repository for the items.
