The Badger’s Burrow

Tiny tiny bones…

Johannes Müller is featured on the award-winning podcast series Beats and Bones, discussing a 13,000-year-old fossil assemblage from northern Germany (in German)

Episode description

A badger’s burrow in northern Germany: from the outside it is quite inconspicuous, but hidden inside are the remains of 13,000 years of animal and plant life. Paleontologist and excavation director Johannes Müller explains to our host Lukas Klaschinski how to determine the age of the bones, which animals might have lived in northern Germany in the past, and how life changed after the Ice Age. Beats & Bones was awarded the German Audiobook Prize as Best Podcast in 2021.
