Yesterday in the paleo lab ...

Yesterday in the paleo lab, VMNH curator Alex Hastings and technician Ray Vodden sampled a mastodon leg bone from Ohio's Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. This sample will get sent out for radiocarbon dating to figure out how long ago it died as part of on-going research into the fascinating fossil Carter Bog fauna of Ohio.
