Vero man refers to a set of fossilized human bones found in Vero Beach in 1915 and 1916. The human bones were found in association with those of Pleistocene animals. Recent studies show that the Vero human bones are from the Pleistocene, and are the largest collection of human remains from the Pleistocene found in North America. In 2014, excavation began in partnership with Mercyhurst Archaeological Institute. Tours are available at the excavation site.
