says: A tooth sample found on Wrangel Island is one of the most recent wooly mammoth remains found to date and is about 4,300 years old.

says 5 different mammoths on Wrangel Island were dated to these ages:
1 mammoth: 4-5k
3 mammoths: 6-7k
1 Mammoth: 7-8k
Walt Brown & Kent Hovind apparently said different parts of the same mammoth elsewhere were dated to vastly different ages, over 10,000 years apart. This site
shows that the claim is false. They were different mammoths or even different animals.
Nonetheless, C14 dating apparently produces wrong ages, since it's highly likely that most sedimentary rock strata were deposited in a short time about 5,000 years ago and the remainder were deposited a few hundred years later.
Since dinosaur bones have been C14 dated to mostly between 23 and 36 thousand years ago (according to [url]http://.dinosaurc14ages.com/carbondating.htm[/url]), there must have been some C14 in the atmosphere at the time of the Great Flood, since their fossils are found in the flood strata. The amount of C14 in the pre-flood atmosphere may have been considerably less than in the post-flood atmosphere, which may explain the differences in C14 datings.
Here are some approximate C14 dates for various items:
(1) 38k Charcoal in Cretaceous clay
(2) 50k Carbonized wood in Cretaceous limestone
(3) 44k Coalified wood
(4) 43k Unfossilized wood, 36 m depth
(5) 3k Wood from mammoth burial site
(6) 5k Collagen from mammoth ivory
(7) 46k mummified wood
(8) 53k mummified wood
(9) 38k Mammoth CO3 of bioapatite
(10) 23k Mastodon CO3 of bioapatite
(11) 43k Lignite lens
(12) 45k Fern tree wood in Cretaceous clay
(13) 20k Soil surrounding Triceratops femur
(14) 46-52k Amber from Triceratops burial site strata

This site mentions "Ashley bone beds of Charleston SC. containing Hadrosaur, mammoth, marine bones and human bones together" at http://genesispark/grave.htm
. That link doesn't work for me and I don't see mention of that bone bed anywhere else online. This may refer to the same bone bed though: http://blog.everythingdinosaur.co.uk/bl ... dersi.html
Finally, I found this at http://www.genesispark.com/exhibits/fossils/graveyards
One of the most fascinating fossil graveyard of all is located in the southern United States. The Ashley Beds is an enormous phosphate graveyard that contains mixed remains of man with land and sea animals, notably dinosaurs, pleisosaurs, whales, sharks, rhinos, horses, mastodons, mammoths, porpoises, elephants, deer, pigs, dogs, and sheep. This catalogue of fossils from the phosphate beds was given in the records of Major Edward Willis who displayed them at multiple expositions (Willis, “Fossils and Phosphate Specimens,” 1881.) Professor F.S. Holmes (paleontologist and curator of the College of Charleston’s Natural History Museum) described the fossil graveyard in a report to the Academy of Natural Sciences: “Remains of the hog, the horse and other animals of recent date, together with human bones mingled with the bones of the mastodon and extinct gigantic lizards.” There can be little doubt what extinct gigantic lizard he referenced for he pictured a hadrosaurus on the front of his 1870 book The Phosphate Rocks of South Carolina and captioned it: “Skeleton of a Fossil Lizard eighteen feet in Length.” Fossil Graveyard - Moreover, on page 31 he wrote, “It was in this Post-Pleiocene age, the period when the American Elephant, or Mammoth, the Mastodon, Rhinoceros, Megathereum, Hadrosaurus, and other gigantic quadrupeds roamed the Carolina forests, and repaired periodically to these Salt-lakes”… (p. 31.) The mixing of these remains was pell-mell throughout the roughly 40 square mile area of this deposit around Charleston, South Carolina. By one estimate, bones made up 65% of the extraordinary phosphate deposits in the region of the Ashley River basin before it was largely mined out. (Keener, J.C., The Garden of Eden and the Flood, 1901, p. 244.) Evolutionists have cast about trying to propose a credible mechanism for mixing creatures from Cretaceous to Holocene in this stratum, but none has been satisfactory and the matter has been expunged from current references to this site.
