Archaeological test excavations have recovered Clovis projectile points and the remains of extinct Ice Age mammoths and camels in a cultivated field near Riley, Kansas. State archeologists indicate finding mammoth and camel remains is very rare in not only the state but in North America. Access to the site is being restricted, limiting the further discovery of tools and mammal remains that could shed light on prehistoric human and mammal activity. Continued agricultural use has potential to destroy remaining archaeological deposits at the Diskau Archeological Site.
