Understanding the beast

. May 24, 2012.

These days the people of Michigan don’t put food on their tables by tracking and killing a five-ton beast with a homemade spear, but they once did. Hunting Mastodons?!, a 20-minute interactive demonstration regarding Michigan mastodon hunters during the last ice age (12,000 years ago), will run Saturdays and Sundays from July 9-31 at the University of Michigan Exhibit Museum of Natural History. The program will focus on how archeologists study artifacts to learn  about the relationship between people and mastodons. You even have the chance to make your own Clovis point—a spearhead that could have taken down the species that first roamed the earth almost 40 million years ago. Free. 1109 Geddes Ave. Saturdays at 11am and 3pm, Sundays at 3pm. 734-764-0478. www.lsa.umich.edu/exhibitmuseum.
