Major Fossils Find in Los Angeles

It's amazing what turned up under an old May Company parking lot in Los Angeles: "the largest known cache of fossils from the last ice age, an assemblage that has flabbergasted paleontologists."

The recent excavation is expected to double the collection of the nearby Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.

Archaeologists carefully removed large quantities of dirt in intact sections so that it could be "excavated" slowly at another site while the land is used for construction of a new parking structure.

You know- with May Company (where Mary Livingston worked and Jack "discovered" her) and fossils- there is a Jack Benny joke in there somewhere. Too bad not many would get it.
