Prehistoric Mammoth Bone Discovery
A prehistoric mammoth bone was discovered sticking up out of the ground on an Oskaloosa farm last weekend days after a heavy rain. Archeologist Marlin Ingalls of the Office of the State Archeologist says the femur or thighbone, which measures four feet, may be just the tip of a rare find. The location of the farm is being kept confidential to protect the site.
