Prehistoric Arctic burial pit containing 13 species of animals baffles scientists

information_items_7481.jpg

Almost 1,300 bones of 13 species of mammals unearthed at new site on Gydan peninsula aged between 10,000 and 50,000 years old. Judging by the bones, the animals came to this remote Arctic site give birth - and also to die. This was a prehistoric maternity hospital and necropolis for mammals that included the extinct mammoth and cave lion, along with species of horse, musk ox, bison and reindeer. Found here too were the bones of an ancient hare, a wolf, a polar fox, a brown bear, and rodents. And not only mammals. There were many bird bones too. Many of the bones were adults: this is where the animals died.
