This object is around 2 million years old and belonged to my family. It is a tooth from a Wolly Mammoth which lived during the Ice Age.
My great Grandad dug up the tooth more than half a century ago while he was at work. He didn't know exactly what it was until he checked with Scientists at the National History Museum in London. The relic is still in the museum today for people to look at. Millions of visitors will have seen the Mammoth's tooth by now!
The tooth was found in Uxbrige (West London) so Mammoths must have been living in Hillingdon millions of years ago!
I didn't know my Great Grandad as he died before I was born, but from this I have a great memory of him that has been past down my family. I think it is a great piece of history!
