The Information Office of the Institute of Archeology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences announced that archaeologists found in the basement of a wine factory the fossilized remains of 3 mammoths, 30-40 thousand years old.

Archaeologists consider the discovery of the remains of mammoths in the basement of a winery located on the outskirts of the city of Krems an Derdonau an interesting surprise, because it is the largest in more than 100 years, and they believe that ancient people set a trap in this area for mammoths.

“Such a dense layer of mammoth bones is rarely found,” says Hannah Barrow Suchon, who supervises the excavations. “This is the first time we have been able to achieve something like this in Austria using modern methods.”

It is noteworthy that archaeologists found remains similar to mammoths in Austria 150 years ago, where, in addition to the mammoth bones, they found tools, artifacts, and ancient charcoal, indicating the existence of an ancient civilization.

According to experts, after completing the study, the mammoth remains found will be displayed in the Natural History Museum in Vienna.
