Woolly mammoth ice caves

Duration: 03:11

Bernard is an explorer and mammoth-hunter. For many years he has led expeditions to remote parts of Siberia, searching for the remains of woolly mammoths, which roamed the Siberian tundra until around 10,000 years ago. Here he shows us his ice cave, buried deep in the permafrost, where the bones are kept safe in the cold.
