Vital to the survival of Ice Age man, mammoths developed almost in tandem with humans before dying out around 4,000 years ago. Cousins rather than ancestors of the elephant, they roamed the earth from Africa and North America to the frozen north, where their remains are now most commonly found. A wealth of spectacular discoveries have shed new light on these Ice Age giants. This new edition includes the latest research and details of recent discoveries from California to Siberia. Lavish illustrations and copious photographs bring these astonishing creatures vividly to life.
