Fieldwork with Steve Holen in Kanorado Kansas
creator of digital collection
From Dave Baysinger"s notes: the Kanorado locality is well known for mammoth, bison and camel bones in close proximity with human artifacts such as stone knives, scrapers and stone flakes. Mammoth bones found several meters deep in the ground here show signs of "spiral fractures" which Dr. Steve Holen, DMNS Curator of Archaeology believes are made only by humans breaking the bones to claim the marrow inside and then using the bone parts for tools. Dr. Holen leans on his shovel as he contemplates the day ahead.
