Flash Frozen Mammoths
Michael Brass writes, "Claims that the mammoths were quick-frozen have been propounded for decades and were disputed by Zimmerman and Tedford as long ago as the mid-1970s (1976, 183): "Some muscle and liver retained identifiable histologic structures. Most tissues were completely disintegrated and partly replaced by masses of bacteria, an indication of considerable post-mortem decay before the remains were entombed beneath the permafrost zone. These points were taken up and elaborated upon further by Kurten (1986, 51-2)....The plants and pollen found within the mammoths, together with the remains in the surrounding sediments, consist entirely of plant varieties adapted to cold climates. The plant remains found in the guts of the mammoth and other mummified animals from Siberia have been analyzed and summarized in detail by Ukraintseva (1993)." (Skeptical Inquirer, July/Aug 2002).
