An Alaskan gold miner is unearthing a treasure trove of perfectly-preserved bones, tens of thousands of years old.
"Boneyard Alaska" is a documentary film by Paul Andrew Lawrence, produced by GlacierFilm, LLC.
It was filmed at an active gold mine just north of Fairbanks, Alaska, USA. There, an Alaskan gold miner is unearthing a treasure trove of perfectly-preserved bones, tens of thousands of years old. What Ice Age secrets lie beneath the permafrost, waiting to be discovered?
John Reeves is a rough Alaskan gold miner with a vast tract of privately-owned land and an eye trained to seek out gold beneath. But as his water-hose blasts away at the permafrost, the bones of long-extinct Ice Age animals emerge from the mud and muck: woolly mammoths, bison, and prehistoric bears. Although he has no scientific training, Reeves has always known that these bones are a treasure of a different sort. He picks up any bone that he finds, and has amassed an immense collection of over a hundred thousand specimens.
For the first time, John invites a small team of expert paleontologists to visit the site...
As the scientists wade into the mud, and peruse the boxes of John Reeves' collection, discoveries are made before our very eyes, potentially re-writing the history of North America.
Traces of fur, flesh, tendon, and other soft tissues which would normally be destroyed by the ravages of time, here have been frozen in time for thousands of years. And since everything in the collection comes from a single location, it offers a snapshot of the Pleistocene epoch, including the extinction event that removed many of these animals from the Earth.
