Mammoth bone hut
Mammoth bone hut. Archaeologists inside a reconstruction of a hut made from bones and tusks of the woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). The walls of the hut are almost entirely composed of mammoth bones, supported by a framework of wooden branches and supporting struts. This hut dates from between 45, 000 and 10, 000 years ago in the Palaeolithic period (Stone Age). It was found in Mezhirich in the Ukraine. The archaeologists are using mammoth bones as percussion instruments, as they believe the original inhabitants of the hut would have done. Photographed in 1976.
