LARGE FOSSIL ELEPHANT BONE
  
About two million years old

 
Norwich Crag
 

Easton Bavents, Suffolk

Part of an elephant limb bone from the Norwich Crag that was found on the Suffolk coast several decades ago and is from an old collection. It is fossilised and very heavy.

  

The Norwich Crag is the name given to a series of marine sands, silts and clays that were deposited in the early Pleistocene Period, between 2.4 and 1.8 million years ago. It can be seen in the cliffs of Suffolk and Norfolk, particularly at Easton Bavents, near Southwold, which is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

  

The Norwich Crag is famous for the bones of large mammals that it has yielded to fossil collectors over the last 250 years. Many of these have been found washed up on the beaches. This bone was found on the beach and is most likely from the large, extinct ‘Southern elephant’ Mammuthus (Archidiskodon) meridionalis, an ancestor of the woolly mammoth.

  
Please note: This bone weighs almost 5 kilograms (£15 postage charge)
