Circa 30,000 BC. Pleistocene Era. A large tooth of the adult extinct Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus Primigenius); offered with a fragment of an adult tusk (not imaged) (2). 3.4 Kg, 230 mm (9 inches).

Extinct species; dredged from North Sea off Holland coast in 'Brown Bank' locality. (CITES restrictions do not apply to material from extinct species or to fossil ivory).

Footnotes
Mammoths were animals of the Ice Age; they co-existed with and were hunted by early man. The North Sea basin is a drowned lanscape, flooded after the end of the last Ice Age. Fishing trawlers occasionally bring up bones and relics from when the area was inhabited as dry land.
