Mastodon Excavation Update
Dr. Nigel Brush, Associate Professor of Geology, has been leading a mastodon excavation in a field near Bellville, Ohio. He was featured in a Columbus Dispatch Science section article and video on October 19th. Dr. Brush and a team of AU students and volunteers are spending their Saturdays at the site digging for the remains of the Mastodon. Archaeology Magazine, a publication of the Archaeological Institute of America, also ran a feature about Dr. Brush and the excavation of the mastodon. This work was also publicized on the Ashland University website.
