Central Park West Development

The project involved redevelopment of a former manufacturing plant property into high rise condominiums in Irvine. During paleontological and archaeological monitoring, Cogstone discovered an 80 by 25 foot bone bed. We recovered a partial mammoth (skull and tusks), several bison, a ground sloth and a turkey vulture. Cogstone conducted fossil salvage, fossil preparation, fossil identification, fossil analysis, radiometric dating, stratigraphic columns, micropaleontological analysis, taphonomic analysis, collection management, interpretive report, transport of large fossils and curation arrangements.(Above, photo of the ground sloth fossil)
