Specialty Geotechnical Contractor DBM was excavating a drilled shaft for the I-5 interchange in Ridgefield, Washington when they dug up something unusual at a depth of 30-ft. At first the WSDOT inspector thought it looked like wood, but then called in a WSDOT archaeologist who took the fragments to University of Washington’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture. The tusk is believed to belong to a Columbian Mammoth and date to approximately 13,000 to 15,000 years ago. Story and image from The Columbian.
