Bison bones helped write Illinois history
The remains of a bison that helped rewrite Illinois' natural history are on display at Dickson Mounds Museum near Lewistown.
First discovered by an amateur archaeologist on property in Peoria County owned by Caterpillar Inc. and Lonza Inc., the remains of several bison were slowly excavated from the site during a 10-year period.
