. Woolly mammoth tusk ties extinct creatures to Alaska hunting camps « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – Chemical analysis of a 14,000-year-old woolly mammoth tusk found that the animal, a healthy female that trekked about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) from Canada’s Yukon Territory before dying at 20 in Interior Alaska, had territory that overlapped that of early humans. The chemical fingerprints in the tusk, combined with DNA analysis of the bones of two young mammoths found in the area, create a compelling case that the people who lived in Pleistocene-era Alaska hunted the giant animals, according to research led by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists. The findings are detailed in the journal Science Advances.
