    • I just attended a lecture at the Silver River State Park on the underwater dig for mammoth bones in the silver river yesterday (7/22/17).  Morgan Smith, PhD student gave the interesting talk to a packed classroom.  I met several on the team and hope to meet them tomorrow as they get back for the daily underwater dig.  They now think they had evidence ( a pressure flake possibly form sharpening a tool found with the mammoth bones in a secure context) that early Florida Man existed at the same time as the Mammoths.  They must evaluate more of the evidence and have already submitted carbon date info for analysis. They expect the date to be over 12,000 years ago.  This is much later than the bones at Montbrook.
