Ten thousand years ago you needed a woolen blanket if you wanted to go outside in the hot summer and midday. Because you are in the ice age then. The giants of the ice age that used to live with humans at that time were the woolly mammoths with long tusks.
They were found in Asia, Europe and North America. Many people think they have seen the movie 10,000BC. The last of these people are believed to have been around until the Pyramids of Giza were completed.
The skull of this creature was found in a farmer’s field near the town of Lima in Michigan, USA. It is believed to be 10,000-15,000 years old.
It was hunted by humans for its meat. Many proving tools have been found near it. Another species that ended up with us, like the Neanderthal man.
