These bones were dredged from the North Sea by a Dutch fishing vessel.   The Mammoth was part of a fauna of large mammals which we associate more with Africa than the temperate zones of Europe but which flourished this far North during the interglacial period, 20,000 years ago.

Originally, the body of a Mammoth would have  been washed up  on the Ox-Bow bend of a river, somewhere on the land bridge between England and Holland.    Before the massive rise in sea levels which happened after the last Ice Age, this land bridge separated the United Kingdom from Europe.

Without the demand  created by interest in fossils, these bones would no doubt have gone back to lie on the sea bed.  We learn so much of our own history and that of the planet on which we live by studying fossils and the soil on which we stand.  An amazing treasure to keep the spirit of the Woolly Mammoth alive forever!  Not suitable for cloning.  We have a few to choose from use the ‘contact us’  facility.
