UNEARTHING A MAMMOTH GRAVEYARD

September 9, 2023 → 5:30 pm6:30 pm

Orkney Theatre, Kirkwall

Two fossil hunters and a working gravel pit near Swindon with something sticking out – it was the top of a huge fossilised mammoth leg bone from around 215,000 years ago, in a warmer period between ages of ice.

The remnants of five mammoths were found – and a human-made hand axe – leading to the documentary Attenborough and the Mammoth Graveyard, and making this ‘one of Britain’s most significant Ice Age discoveries in recent years,’ according to Historic England.

The discoverers, Neville and Sally Hollingworth, tell the story and describe the ancient world in which the mammoths and their hunters lived.

Tickets £6 & £4 can be booked through this LINK.
