We run a bit of a risk with this month's edition of Underground History. Normally the segment is about archaeology, but this time around we talk to a paleontologist.
Which is fine; the work is similar, and in fact, the fields are often confused. Nick Famoso grew up in Grants Pass and is now the chief paleontologist at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Eastern Oregon.
Chelsea Rose is back from that part of the state, back at the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology (SOULA).
She and Nick Famoso talk about the similarities and differences in their fields.
