Baylor Offers Video Tour of Waco Mammoth Site

Jan. 22, 1996

"A Tour Of The Waco Mammoth Site," a program currently airing on The College Channel, cable channel 18 in Waco, provides a guided tour of the site near Waco where the remains of 22 mammoths have been discovered since 1978.

The video tour, produced by the Baylor Office of Public Relations, is hosted by Calvin Smith, the director of Baylor's Strecker Museum. Smith has been instrumental in unearthing the remains of the mammoths at the site, which experts have called one of the most important paleontological sites in the world.

During the 50-minute guided tour, Smith tells the history of the site, points out various mammoth bones and artifacts, and describes the efforts made by the Strecker Museum to remove and preserve the remains.

"A Tour Of The Waco Mammoth Site" will air each day in January at 5 p.m., except for Thursdays when it will air at 10 a.m.
