Smithsonian Magazine: Bison Mummies Help Scientists Ruminate on Ancient Climate. “Over 28,000 years ago, a steppe bison, Bison priscus, died in present-day Alaska. Its body was preserved by permafrost until scientists discovered it in 1951. The bison now rests in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, able to be seen by a virtual tour or in the ‘David H. Koch Hall of Fossils – Deep Time’ when the museum reopens.”
