Ice Age Giants: The Mystery of Mammoths and MastodonsStateMuseum

Exhibit at The Indiana State Museum: Nov. 16, 2013 – Aug. 17, 2014 Underneath Indiana’s soil lies a hidden graveyard of Ice Age giants. Entombed for thousands of years, the remains of these ancient elephants continue to be uncovered by Hoosiers across the state. The Indiana State Museum has been hard at work for decades – discovering, digging, studying and preserving the remains of mammoths, mastodons and other Ice Age animals.

Picture Books:It’s not often that you find the remains of a prehistoric animal right in your own backyard. That’s what happened on the Christensen farm, near Greenfield, Indiana, in 1976. As workers used machinery to create a pond, they accidentally scooped up the skull, teeth, and some rib bones of a mastodon. The mastodon is an extinct relative of the modern elephant that roamed the earth more than 10, 000 years ago. The bones were excavated by a cooperative effort of the IUPUI Department of Geology, the Indiana Amateur Archaeological Society and The Children’s Museum.
