Topic: Shirley's Box: The Highgate Mastodon Story
All museums have wonderful donations from time to time. Some donations come with a label detailing their provenance, which may amount to a couple of lines or which may open the way to a fascinating history.
Shirley’s Box, started as a simple box of fossils, which turned into a wonderful story, which can inform us about the pre-history of Ontario. No, we didn’t have dinosaurs roaming here but we did have giants of the ice age, mammoths, mastodons, giant beaver and more.
