    So, as some of you may remember, I have described my house as a cross between a museum, an armory, a library and a zoo.
    My latest purchase just proves this.
    Friday, I purchased a partial mammoth tusk. It is almost 17 inches from end to end.
    The individual I bought it from was using the money from it's sale plus some he had saved back, to purchase a larger tuck piece.

    Below is a pic.

    It is estimated to be about 40,000 years old, It is from the North Sea, where it was pulled up in a fish net.
    The North Sea is very shallow between the UK and Europe, there is believed to have been a land bridge connecting the two several times in the past.
    As fihhing boat pull nets across the bottom of the sea floor, they snag pieces like this and bring them to the surface.
