West Runton Mammoth

As you're probably aware, one of the most exciting finds reported to Cromer Museum was the finding of the West Runton Mammoth, and curator Martin Warren was able to bring together the team that would fully uncover and excavate it.

A couple of vertebrae of the mammoth can be seen here in 3D. Click the arrow to load the 3D model and experiment to turn it and enlarge it. You can switch between models using the small icons at the bottom. On the left is the 5th vertebra and on the right is the 3rd vertebra.

The Friends of the Museum have been able to provide a short video on the prehistory of the area as part of the Deep History project. It looks back to the discovery of the West Runton mammoth in 1990, its prompt reporting to Cromer Museum, and the subsequent excavation by the Norfolk Museum Service and their colleagues.
