Untouched cave to provide clues to Black Hills history
"On Monday, a team of scientists led by East Tennessee State University professor Jim Mead will begin unearthing the entrance of the cave, hauling out bags of sediment and animal bones to be carefully analyzed. They have already found bones dating back nearly 11,000 years and the remains of at least three species that hadn't been found in the region before—the pika, pine marten and platygonus, an extinct relative of the modern-day peccary."
