Ashfall Fossil Beds, Museum Notes Series By Mike Voorhies, Curator of Vertebrate paleontology. Hundreds of skeletons of prehistoric animals have museum crews working in the ashfall fossil beds in northern Antelope County. http://www-museum.unl.edu/research/vertpaleo/ashfall.html
Extractions: February 1992 Hundreds of skeletons of prehistoric animals have been found in a volcanic ash bed buried beneath the rolling farmlands of northeastern Nebraska. Some of the best-preserved fossil rhinos, horses, camels, and birds known anywhere have been, and are being, excavated by museum crews working in the Ashfall Fossil Beds in northern Antelope County. Unlike most fossil deposits, which consist of scattered bones accumulated over extended periods of time, the ash bed contains mostly articulated remains with bones still joined together in the proper order.Quick burial in volcanic ash accounts for the three-dimensional preservation of the skeletons of species that became extinct millions of years before they could have been seen by humans. These remarkably lifelike skeletons, some of which contain unborn young and stomach contents, give paleontologists an opportunity to reconstruct the life appearance and habits of these ancient species with an accuracy never before attainable. The ash bed also contains abundant additional clues to the vegetation and climate of the landscape in which the rhinos and other animals lived and died. It is truly a 'time capsule' presenting us with a picture of a vanished world unrivaled in detail and clarity. This pamphlet describes some of the highlights of the first two decades of exploration of the site. It also invites you, the reader, to experience a sense of discovery of Nebraska's deep past by visiting the locality, which is now open to the public five months each year.

Thousands of dinosaur remains have been found worldwide. 'Fossils' are remains of prehistoric organisms, preserved by burial under countless layers of sedimentary material. They are a record of the history of life, beginning approximately 3.5 billion years ago. The study of fossils is called 'paleontology'.
