ELEPHANT BONE - CROMER FOREST BED, NORFOLK.


Probosicean indet.

Heavily mineralised fragment of a limb bone (possibly the tibia) from an elephant. Several different elephants are recorded from the North Norfolk Coast including the Southern Elephant, Archidiskodon meridionalis, the straight tusked elephant, Palaeoloxodon antiquus and an early form of mammoth, Mammuthus trogontherii. The thick outer bone layers and the central pulp cavity are well illustrated where one end of the bone has been cut and polished. Any fossils from this famous deposit are difficult to come by.

Late Middle Pleistocene, Cromerian Stage, Cromer Forest Bed.
Mundesley, North Norfolk Coast.

Bone : 12 x 4.8 x 3.5 cm.
