THESE IMAGES TAKEN AT BREVARD MUSEUM OF
NATURAL HISTORY IN COCOA, FLORIDA.
In early 1994, during the installation of drain tile patterns in a southeast Wisconsin
cornfield, workers ran into what has become one of North Americas most important Ice
Age discoveries - a nearly complete skeleton of a woolly mammoth. Named the Hebior
Mammoth, this specimen and its surrounding site was carefully excavated over 6 months by a
professional archaeology team
Not only is this specimen one of the largest and most complete (85%) Mammuthus
primigenius ever found in North America, its importance is underscored by the fact it
was butchered by paleoindians 11,000 years ago. Numerous pry marks, chop marks, stone tool
cuts and wedge compressions are apparent on several bones. The skeleton was carefully
disarticulated, butchered and then stacked in a pile. In addition, the skull was removed
and the cranium broken into from the palate region presumably to extract the brains.
