First Humans in New England May Have Met and Hunted Woolly Mammoths

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The discovery of a long-forgotten woolly mammoth bone may prove that humans and woolly mammoths coexisted in the northeastern United States.

Did humans and woolly mammoths share the same territory near the end of the last Ice Age in what is now the Northeastern United States? A new study from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, has given scientists reason to believe they might have, at least for a short time. 

Dusting Off Woolly Mammoth Bone After 100 Years

A pair of Dartmouth anthropologists, Postdoctoral Fellow Nathaniel Kitchel and associate professor Jeremy De Silva, ordered radiocarbon dating tests on a sample of fossilized woolly mammoth bone that had been retrieved from a bog in Vermont and kept in storage for more than 100 years. 

The tests showed the woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) had lived and died approximately 12,800 years ago. This is very close to the time when the first humans were believed to have arrived in the area now known as New England, during a late post-glacial cooling period known as the Younger Dryas.
