Interpretation

    • Dating back to the last interglacial period, these teeth belonged to a giant deer – a species extinct by now – and are around 115,000 years old. The bone was found in 1872 in the lower cave earth inside Victoria Cave and surrounding finds suggest that the bone had been deposited by a spotted hyena. It is currently archived in the Tot Lord collection in Yorkshire.
