The Mammoth News
Summer 2008, Volume 17
This summer we had adults in Principia’s Summer Session work in the lab on a cluster of ribs that had been removed from the excavation site by a previous Summer Session class in 2003. We removed much of the matrix from the underside and found several ribs and a more massive bone that we could not identify in the field. We also began work on another bone that we could not identify in the field; this was the first bone that we removed from the pit in the summer of 2002.
During Summer Session I gave a tour of the lab and skull block to about 60 people.
Terry Hillig of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch came to see our progress and interview me for another article. He also interviewed Dr. Jeff Saunders by telephone. Terry’s first article was printed in January 2005 and picked up by papers across the country.
