15 million-year-old whale skull found on banks of Potomac River

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

So far, only the skull, lower jaw and some isolated vertebrae and rib bones have been removed from the sand-covered cliffs overlooking the river. These bones are on display in the paleontology hall of the museum in Solomons, Md., where interns are working to clean sand and clay from around the bone, Nance said.

A team plans to continue digging for the remainder of the skeleton this week, with work scheduled for Tuesday and Saturday. In all, Nance expects the excavation process to take about two weeks.
