(DENVER. CO. FEBRUARY 14, 2005) Denver Museum Of Nature and Science curator of archaeology Steven Holen show off mamoth and camel bones which have signs of human impact on Monday February 14, 2005 in Denver. The bones of the now-extinct animals were discovered last summer at an excavation site in northwestern Kansas and could rewrite the history of humans on the Great Plains. The bones, which appear to have been fractured by humans, were collected from a site in Sherman County, Kansas, and studied by scientists at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, the Kansas Geological Survey and the University of Kansas. Dated by carbon-14 methods at 12,200 years old, the bones could be the oldest evidence of human occupation in Kansas, and may be the oldest evidence of humans on the Great Plains. (Photo By MARIA J.
