Possible Pre-Clovis Find With Wolly Mammoth in Wisconsin

A wooly mammoth dated to between 11,700-15,000 years ago has  been excavated in Michigan. Large parts of the remains of the mammoth were excavated aling with possible stone tools for cutting and anchoring. The vertebra were arrayed in correct anatomical sequence and not scattered. A pond may have been used for storage. Cut marks on the bones will be sought and dated. The dates may be within the Clovis range, but there is a chance that the dates will be Pre-Clovis.

Archaeology.org has the report here, with a photo;
