In the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), on Kotelny Island, mammoth tusks were found that were processed by ancient people. Scientists have yet to confirm this version in the laboratory, but they have little doubt in their guess.

With the help of local residents, paleontologists of the Academy of Sciences of Yakutia dug up a plot of 20 square meters. Managed to extract the mammoth skeleton, consisting of 40% bones. According to experts, the modern man would not handle the tusks in the tundra, unlike the ancient people who did not have the transport to transport such goods.

The boiler room is the largest among the Novosibirsk islands. It was once part of land, so archaeological finds are not uncommon. Scientists have yet to return here to unearth the skeleton of a pygmy mammoth that was discovered last year.
