Kor en Bot ziet Abraham
Cranium , Volume 18 - Issue 1 p. 3- 6
On Saturday September 16th of last year, the traditional Kor en Bot expedition took place for the 50th time. Every year this expedition is held on the Oosterschelde, a salty estuary of the river Schelde, with a mussel trawler owned by local fishermen, to drag for fossils on the bottom of the river. The members of the informal society Kor en Bot (literally: Trawl and Bone) trawled 42 times, at an average depth of 45 metres. Amongst large quantities of seabottom dwellers like starfishes, sea mice, and worms, nine referable fossils were discovered this year, and 12 indeterminable fragments. The taxa are all of Early Pleistocene age: Mammuthus meridionalis, Anancus arvernensis, Eucladoceros ctenoides, and Equus sp. A distal humerus and a proximal radius of the deer appeared to belong to one and the same animal. A small exhibition in the town hall of Zierikzee showed the beauties found over the past fifty years. The permanent exhibition is housed at the Maritiem Museum (Zierikzee).
