The Mystery Behind This Nebraska Burial Site Has Baffled Scientists For Decades

There are more mysteries out there in Nebraska than you might expect. In those vast expanses of prairies, grasslands, sand hills, and rocks lie some of the region’s most fascinating fossils. The world’s largest mammoth fossil was unearthed here years ago, and the Ashfall Fossil Bed site is an active excavation that you can watch unfold before your eyes. However, Ashfall isn’t the only active site Nebraska has to offer.
