Peabody Fossil Hunter

About Us

Since 2005, the Yale Peabody Museum’s Division of Vertebrate Paleontology has sent expeditions to North Dakota and Montana to prospect and collect fossils from the end of the “Age of Dinosaurs” and the beginning of the “Age of Mammals.”

This year, the fossil hunters are a group of professors and students from Yale University’s departments of Geology and Anthropology. Professor Eric Sargis is Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at the Peabody Museum. Graduate students include Jessamy Doman (Anthropology), Stephen Chester (Anthropology), and Tyler Lyson (Geology and Geophysics), who is also founder of the Marmarth Research Foundation. Undergraduates Greg Mittl (Anthropology 2012), and Rae Ellen Bichell (Anthropology 2012), who manages this blog. Natasha Vitek (Yale Geology and Geophysics 2011) will be starting graduate work in paleontology at UT Austin this fall.
