Betsy Perdichizzi, right, of the Marco Island Historical Society, shakes a sifter to discard loose soil Thursday while Jean Belknap, of the Southwest Florida Archaeological Society watches, as the pair helped an archaeological dig on Vernon Place on Marco Island. First time volunteers for the dig, both were excited about the prospect of unearthing artifacts from the Calusa Indian tribe. 'We are hoping to find great treasures to put in the new Marco Island Museum,' Perdichizzi said.
