Mammoth in the Artichokes

During the Great Ice Age, mammoths and other now-extinct animals roamed what we know as the Monterey Bay region. Discover the evidence uncovered in a Castroville artichoke field, and learn what the research team found as they searched for evidence of the Paleo Indians who put mammoths at the top of their menus. This lecture will be presented by Mark Hylkema, the Santa Cruz District Archaeologist for California State Parks. Admission is $5 (free for Museum Members)
