Registered Find Basics


    • This female brown bear skull from Victoria Cave dates back to the end of the late glacial period and is around 14,600 years old. Surrounding bones indicate that she died soon after giving birth in a cave that was mostly used by adult males and juveniles. The skull is currently archived in the Tot Lord collection in Yorkshire.
