Paleontologists found mammoth tusks with marks of ancient people


Paleontologists found on the island of Kotelny in the Arctic Ocean a skeleton of a mammoth on which tusks the marks, most likely, left by ancient people were found. As reports N 1, the skeleton remained for 40%, locals knew about its existence 10 years ago.

Scientists conducted excavation together with locals. They dug over the site of 20 square meters. Researchers emphasize that modern people would not begin to process tusks in the tundra, and would bring them to a hunting small hut. Ancient people had no transport on which it was possible to transport heavy things therefore hulk was processed on the place, the manufactured tools took away, and the remains left in the same place.

Scientists intend to conduct further researches of bones and radio-carbon dating to determine the age of remains.

Kotelny is the largest among islands of the Novosibirsk archipelago washed by the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea. In a pleistocene the archipelago was a part sushi and the climate on it was softer, than now. On the island rhinoceroses, woolly mammoths and horses whose remains periodically thaw were found and they are found by locals or researchers. Subscribe by
