Re: North by Northwest (was Polar Sauropods )

I recall seeing on National Geographic Explorer a few years back about
northern natives recovering mammoth tusks from the ice by using a 55 gal
full of boiling water and applying a nossil to the ground around the embeded
tusk to use steam/water to free the tusk from the ground.  They made a
living at selling the ivory in the tusk to the dwendling ivory market (legal
that is).  Perhaps this would work in freeing fossils not enclosed by too
much rock.
