LEG BONE OF A
WOOLLY RHINOCEROS
FROM CAMBRIDGESHIRE


20,000 years old
 
Terrace deposits of the River Ouse,
Earith, near St. Ives, Cambridgeshire


The gravel exposed at the former gravel pits at Earith yielded numerous bones of Ice Age mammals in the 1980s and 1990s, including mammoth and woolly rhinoceros. Many of these were rescued by collectors and are now conserved in museums and private collections.


Ice Age bones and teeth are relatively young in geological terms and so are only partially fossilised. For this reason they are usually treated with a preservative.  

​​​​​​​
Bones of Ice Age mammals from British inland sites only very rarely come up for sale. This bone is not complete as it is missing two ends, but it is still quite impressive.
