Research on the remains of a 9-ton mammoth found in a Chelsea field over a year ago may prove that humans existed in Michigan a thousand years earlier than previously thought.
After a year of restoration work, the partial remains of the mammoth are going on display this coming weekend at the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History beginning November 5th.
I spoke to museum director Amy Harris. She says the mammoth display will be given enough room for scientists to continue their research while the public can view the display.
Meanwhile, U of M scientists have been given permission to return to the site where the Mammoth was first discovered in the coming weeks to look for more evidence, which may give more solid proof to their theories about the existence of humans in the state.
