Today our class was excavating the matrix dirt sent from Cornell University. The dirt was surrounded by a 10,000 year old mastodon and now located at the Ithaca Museum of the Earth . The Matrix did not look like what I expected to look. I thought it was going to look like fresh dirt, but it actually looked like a dry clay substance. I found very interesting objects during session 1 observations. I found twigs, shells, and an a object that looked somewhat like a rock. I am very excited to dig thought the dirt and find fascinating things!
