    I’m out sick today but can people please sign up for next monday’s Matrix sorting at Ginny Switt’s science classes at Oak Hall? Ginny is providing lunch for people that are present all day.  I will send out a sign up throw email to get a list of people and times. I believe we need to be there by 8a until about 3p. I plan on being there all day.  We’ll be working with groups of 18 students at a time. Thanks!

    Intro to Paleo students from Northwest Florida State College are out at Montbrook all week. They started off the day with a little teamwork and problem solving how to go get a large jacket out of the site. We provided the tools they provided the muscle and plan on how to get the jacket up to the van. They did a fantastic job getting both the jacket and themselves safely out of the pit! #collectionsite #method

    Nice! Looks like a very well preserved eagle ray plate!

    The Intro to Natural History course at UF spent the day at Montbrook and they took a chomp our of the matrix to find some cool fossils! Thanks @adania-flemming for being an innovative instructor and bringing your class out! #event #collectionsite

    Gomphothere tibia/fibula perhaps? Thoughts on the element ID? I know it’s gomphothere for sure. #fossil #collectionsite

    They mean that someone made a tool out this tusk! I don’t know much more unfortunately as I don’t know much about archeological tools

    Check out those hatch marks on the proboscidean tusk I was scanning yesterday! #fossil #method

    Looks like dugong rib. Or at least a chunk of it. Is it super heavy?

    Exactly @jbauer it’s the microstructures, in this case the Schreger Pattern, not to be confused with the Hunter-Schreger Bands we see in most mammal teeth, that align in different patterns (V-shapes, X-shaped, or checkerboard) and at different angles that defines the genus of proboscidean. Hoping to figure that out for this tool, as well as potentially determine from which portion of the tusk the tool was made from (the center, edges, etc)

    CT-scanning this tool made out of some type of elephant tusk. Through the scans from this process, we’ll be able to determine who the tusk belonged to! In a follow up picture, after the scans have been processed, I’ll share the cool hatch marks made from the tools used to whittle the tusk! #fossil #method

    • Cool! @jeanette-pirlo So can you tell the species via microstructure of the tusk material? Or what sort of identifiers does the CT scan help bring out?
