The Wenas Creek Mammoth Field School will focus on excavation of a 16,000 year old mammoth and associated materials from June 21 through August 13, 2010. (A shorter season is also available.) With methods from archaeology, paleontology, and geography, the sixth season of this project will recover Ice Age faunas, and perhaps artifacts, in context. Thus far there have been two artifacts recovered slightly above the mammoth bones. A flyer is attached.
The field school was featured briefly in the History Channel’s “Journey to 10,000 B.C.” Application materials and more information are available from the Participate! link at
