... The other interesting find was mammoth bones (Yashina, 2000; Stuart et al., 2002) discovered to the north of Mologo-Sheksninskoye lake in 1943. Different laboratories provided radiocarbon determinations dated the age of those mammoth's bones from 9800 to 11,000 BP. ...
... Another rare, for these latitudes, find of a mammoth from Zhidikhovo peat bog in the vicinity of Cherepovets (59 10 0 N, 37 42 0 E;Table 2;Fig. 2 point 2) has been described in recent publications (Yashina, 2000; Stuart et al., 2002 ). In 1943, 68 bones of Mammuthus primigenius (professor N.K. Vereshchagin considered that they belonged to a young female, oral report) were found during peat mining at the peat-sapropel boundary at a depth of about 2.5 m. ...
Article
The paleontological collections of museums of northern European Russia include unpredictable finds, such as the tooth of the forest elephant Elephas (Palaeoloxodon) antiquus (Falconer) in the collection of the Cherepovets Museum of Nature. The aim of the research is to define more precisely its systematic reference, age, and individual characteristics. The find indicates that the forest zone extended to 59–60°N during the Mikulin (Eemian) interglacial. The paleontological collections of Vologda regional museums include exhibits referred to the Late Pleistocene, namely Mammuthus primigenius, Equus sp., Rangifer tarandus, Bison priscus, and Ovibos pallantis. The majority of the finds conform to the transitional periods of warm and cold spells of the middle Valdai. Some Holocene finds of the region indicate the existence of favorable conditions for large-mammal species to inhabit the areas near 60°N.
