OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) — A group of scientists have found a mammoth bone at a dig site in southern Iowa's rural Mahaska (muh-HAS'-kuh) County.

The group was cleaning up mud and other debris when they made the discovery Saturday.

Researcher Holmes Semken tells the Oskaloosa Herald (http://bit.ly/1vMIs9p ) that the bone shows evidence of fractures.

The newspaper reports the scientists are preparing the dig site for a visit from a group out of the University of Kansas. They do geoarchaeological research for evidence of early humans.
