Archaeologists, volunteers and locals dig into Florida’s Pleistocene to solve a 100-year-old controversy: Did the mammoth, along with the flora and fauna of the last ice age 14,000 years ago in Florida, share their environment with humans? The controversy started in 1915, as the Main Relief Canal was first dug for drainage west of U.S. 1 in Vero. That is when Florida state geologist Dr. Elias Sellards recovered human skeletal remains along with extinct mega-fauna such as mammoths, mastodons, saber-tooth cats and bear-sized sloths of the Late Pleistocene. Were these humans living side by side with extinct late ice age mammals or had these bones somehow become introduced at a later date?
