Utah family stumble across Ice Age fossil during garden renovations

Usually, when one goes to renovate their home they do not think that the drama would extend far beyond foundation issues or design disagreements. However, one couple that decided to redo their home and back yard came upon a discovery in the back yard that was as unexpected as can be. As soon as the renovations in the outdoor area of their home began, of which the couple did much themselves, they had just begun with the removal of dirt when a few feet down, they hit something hard. Upon more delicate excavation by the couple, they realized that they had unearthed bones. They continued to dig to see if there was more and indeed there was. What they ended up finding was confusing as they could not place the bones they had found to an animal they recognized, so they had no idea what they had found, making this literal uncovering increasingly interesting. By the time they finished digging up the bones, they had shed light onto a whole skeleton; of what they did not know.

Back yard discoveries


Laura and Bridger Hill, the couple who found the strange bones, are not alone in their find of interesting and very old items in their back yard as they go down the path of renovation and home improvement.

It is quite a trend these days for people to renovate their homes in a more do-it-yourself fashion, thanks to the plethora of home improvement shows that inspire us all to make our home more beautiful. However, most do not make such a discovery.
