Tunnel construction in London has unearthed the bones of prehistoric animals which bear markings of being butchered by humans.

The remains, found near Royal Oak station, include those of bison, deer and the auroch, a large ancestor of modern cattle.

Some of the bones appear to have small marks on them which may suggest butchery by humans.

They will now be cleaned and studied before they are incorporated into the Natural History Museum’s permanent collection.
