Prehistoric Ox Horns

Posted by Tenby Museum on Jun 19, 2018 Blog No Comments

It sometimes amazes me what artefacts we have here in Tenby Museum. Only recently I was browsing through the substantial archaeological collections on the hunt for some finds from Hoyle’s Mouth Cave and came across these wonderful prehistoric horn cores of a great wild ox.  Research into the documentation system revealed that these were found in 1869 in had been preserved in the submerged forests at Wiseman’s Bridge.

The museum’s archaeology collection ranges from early prehistoric and Palaeolithic finds such as these through to material from the Neolithic, Mesolithic, Bronze, Iron and Romano-British ages, as well as a phenomenal geological collection including the world-wide collected Ridsdale Collection. All of our collections are available for research purposes by appointment upon request – just get in touch if you are interested!
