Awesome Mammoths Ice Age Giants Exhibition, National History Museum, from 23rd May to 7th September 2014
Awesome is an apt word for the Mammoths Ice Age Giants Exhibition on display at London’s National History Museum from 23rd May 2014. You will discover amazing facts about Ice Age history in the shadow of the huge models and skeletons on display.
This exhibition takes you through what the ice age world looked like more than 40,000 years ago and is a truly unique experience not to be missed. A highlight of this exhibition is meeting a baby woolly mammoth discovered by a reindeer herder and his son in Russia’s Yamal Peninsula of Siberia 7 years ago.
The mammoth (aged about a month old) was found frozen and incredibly her body is preserved mainly intact. It was decided to name the mammal Lyuba (pronounced Loo-ba) and interestingly the remains of her mother’s milk are still in her stomach. This amazing creature is around 42,000 years old and it is a one-off opportunity to view her for the first time in western Europe.
All of the family will love the Mammoths Ice Age Giants Exhibition.
