Woolly Mammoth Tusk

Description: Fifty thousand years ago, the North Sea did not exist. The area between what are now the white cliffs of Dover and the Dutch sandy dunes was part of the continent of Europe and the natural habitat of woolly rhinos, Irish elks and other prehistoric marvels. On these fertile grounds they fed, fought, procreated and died for thousands of years. Then the ice came. The lowering of the earth?s temperature at around 25.000 B.C. caused the extinction of these fascinating creatures, their remains being buried by hundreds of meters of ice which covered the whole of northern Europe. Temperatures rose and melt began to set in at around 12.000 B.C., replacing the ice with water and so giving birth to the North Sea as we know it today. The remains of its old inhabitants were still there, however, now covered by a thin layer of sand and fathoms of salty water. Nowadays tidal currents cause the seabed to turn around, freeing the fossils from their sandy tome and causing them to get stuck in the sturdy nets of Dutch fishing boats that leave port every week, facing the dangers of the North Sea, to provide the world with the best that the sea has to offer. We have several pieces of Woolly Mammoth tusk (bark), prices starting from ?4 - ?20.
