Mastodon Dig and AU Geology in the News

AU Geology Professor Dr. Nigel Brush and his mastodon dig in Morrow County were featured in a Mansfield News Journal article titled "Morrow County mastodon might have coexisted with humans." The article talks about how a team led by Brush spent several days digging up hundreds of bones and fragments from the Morrow County site and then several months piecing together fragments, identifying bones, cleaning and preserving the artifacts and collaborating with experts throughout the country and in Canada to research the findings. Several AU students assisted with this project.  The items from the dig were displayed in a lecture hall in Kettering Science Center. Check out the article at --
