Mammoths came to the Museum
The February General Meeting was a great success. Our speaker, Mark Hylkema, gave a mesmerizing talk on an archeological excavation taking place in Castroville--the site were Mammoth bones were discovered in 2011.
Mark has directed excavations throughout the greater San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas and teaches Anthropology at Foothill College. Mark is the third of four generations of Sunnyvale residents and is an expert in local pre-history and early colonial history very well.
We have posted a video of part of the talk online. It can be found on our new YouTube channel HERE. More background and photos on the excavation can be found on our Facebook Page.
Thanks again to those of you who attended our February General Meeting and heard Mark Hylkema's talk on "Excavating the Castroville Mammoths." We will definitely have him back as a speaker at one of our future meetings.
