The city of Edina is hoping to find some history underground.

For the first time, an archaeological study will be conducted across the entire city limits.

Starting in the spring, a team will survey parks and areas along the Minnehaha Creek looking for prehistoric and Native American artifacts.

Initially, no digging will be done. The team will first use sonar equipment trying to discover the artifacts.

Archaeologist Robert Vogel is working with the city on the project after Edina received a $10,000 grant from the federal government

"The thing about archaeology is that it's invisible until you go look for it," Vogel said. "Excitement is the only way to describe it that maybe we can find something really really cool."  

The archaeological study will run through next summer.
