Published on September 15th, 2009 | by Admin


The remains of various Ice Age animals, including hyenas, deer and woolly rhinos, have been found in a cave in Devon.

The dig at Kents Cavern, Torquay, also unearthed a 15,000-year-old spearpoint, known as a “sagaie”, which is made from reindeer antler from the same era.

The spearpoint is thought to be the first complete one found in the UK.
