CROMER FOREST BED - ELEPHANT BONE FROM NORFOLK


A thick piece of bone showing large bone cells on one surface. This is undoubtedly a fragment from a limb bone of a large Proboscidean. Three species of elephant are tentatively recorded from this famous deposit:- an early type of Mammoth; the Southern Elephant and the Straight Tusked Elephant. Of these three, remains of the Southern Elephant Archidiskodon meridionalis Nesti are better represented in old collections. Impossible to assign this fragment to anything specific.

Early Middle Pleistocene, Cromerian, Cromer Forest Bed Series
Mundesley, North Norfolk Coast

Bone Fragment: 13.5 x 9 x 2 cm
