Today's issueWe've been looking forward to this issue on Archeology. Then we saw the story on Mammoth blood and had to add it. There have been a lot of discoveries over the last few years, and we think these stories represent a few of the latest.
Siberian Mammoth BloodAs more than one person has asked me, "Why would we clone Mammoths?" I tease by suggesting Mammoth steaks and pet Mammoths, and let it go. Why indeed. Part of the answer to these questions will be because we can. Scientists want to develop effective cloning methodologies, find ways to improve the process, and this is a new opportunity. Beyond that are all the ideas., suggested theories, and gathered information about Mammoths. This could be an opportunity to learn more about the animal.
How History ChangesIt is discoveries like this that cause reassessment of what we think we know about the past. These two retired amateurs also show that age is not a hindrance.
Princess of the ScythiansThere is a link to a couple other stories within this article. Our link below the story is on the Scythians.
