Schoolboy finds 6,000-year-old auroch horn

3 posts in this topic

A teenage boy who found a massive fossil on a British beach has discovered it's a 6,000-year-old auroch horn - after initially thinking it was just a piece of driftwood.

After realising it was a fossil, Archie Wood, 13, who made the discovery while metal detecting, thought it might be a mammoth tusk.

But experts have now revealed the fossil, dug up on Bexhill beach, East Sussex, probably belonged to an ancient cow called an auroch which roamed forests during the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age.
