My third cousin, Tom, lives in Madelia and likes to hunt for fossils. He posted recently a story about someone finding a 5 foot long wooly mammoth tusk near New Ulm. That must have been so exciting to dig up! Who would have imagined mammoths near New Ulm?
Paleontology was fun to learn about, but I always wanted to be an archeologist. I love reading about history, and right now I would really love to focus all my attention on the very distant past. (Thinking about the future isn’t so pleasant at this point. ) I think I would like to explore Frisian and Saxon settlements anywhere in the world, just to get a better sense of my ancestral culture.
What era of history fascinates you? What would you like to dig up?
