Abby Elconin Discussion 320 Vanessa Smolenski Project #1 Big-game Hunting of Paleo-Indians After visiting the University of Wisconsin Geology Museum and the webpage of the Skare site, it is clear that the Paleo-Indians, known by many as the first Americans, were inhabitants of Wisconsin and hunted large animals. Evidence of this point is on display at both sites including bones from mammoths and mastodons, and archaic tools used by the Paleo- Indians. The University of Wisconsin Geology Museum displays many remains of megafauna. A mastodon tooth from the Pleistocene period (Ice Age) is exhibited, which was discoverd at the bottom of Lake Monona in 1986. The tooth is about the size of a large brick and looks like three molars put together. Also, parts of the mastodon skeleton are on display along with fake bones to complete it. The left ribs of the skeleton are real and show natural healing from fractures indicating the mastodon was wounded. Spears were also found at Paleo-Indian sites near megafauna bones, evidence that mastodons were hunted by Paleo-Indians.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
