Een vermoedelijk laatglaciaal herteskelet uit de Tjonger Vallei (zuidoost Friesland)
Cranium , Volume 6 - Issue 1 p. 45- 50
The largely complete skeleton of a Red Deer has been recovered from Lake (gyttja) deposits in the Tjonger Valley in the Netherlands. Simultaneously from four other individuals a few to some tens of bones were found at the same stratigraphic level, supplemented by some isolated bones. The remains were located along a valley traverse, where the palaeolake was most shallow and narrow. The in situ presence of only the distal parts of a femur pair and the find of bone points with the shape of Ahrensburg tanged points (but twice as large) are thought to indicate hunting by Stone Age men. Dating as yet is based on lithostratigraphical grounds only: The type of sequence and major cryoturbatic structures indicates a Late Glacial age. Basal mini-depressions and intenal gravel strings and coarse sand layers point specifically to a middle Late Dryas age for the bone containing layer.
