Thomas Jefferson School of Law can now claim that its new school is not just historic but pre-historic in San Diego. Construction workers preparing the site for the new school have discovered a 500,000 year old mammoth at the site. Better yet, it is a Columbian mammoth. Presumably, the students can now claim a dual TJ and Columbia degree.
The mammoth remains were found in the East Village area when the workers started to dig out the location for the $68 million building.
Paleontologists “say the bones hold clues about animal life in the downtown area a half-million years ago.” They are presumably looking for body piercings, Billabong wet suit, and a giant can of Red Bull.
They believe the mammoth died in a collision since they found the remains of a pre-historic personal injury lawyer near the tusks.
