Ice Age!

DE&i

2,383 views

Hi everyone,

I managed another 3 hours voluntary work at the Peterborough Museum where one of the assignments was to help make plaster cast for one of their forthcoming events over the schools half-term holidays.

Ice Age!

Thursday 5th February 2015

Get up close to real woolly mammoth tusks and teeth in our Ice Age Gallery and enjoy the story ‘Oscar and Arabella’s Hot, Hot, Hot’

Then get crafty and make a woolly mammoth head mask before you stomp home!

The first photo is shaping up nicely to be a plaster cast of a mammoth toe bone.

The second photo is a cast of erm…can you guess what it is yet.

Hi Jeff you are indeed correct it is a Elephant radius ulna Its a cast from the West Runton elephant that was found by the society I belong to in Norfolk.

Have you seen on the BBC news that remnants from another elephant have just been recently found.

Very exciting times....im taking my son to the location at the end of March.
