Skeletons out of the closet

Not complete skeletons, but some interesting and very old bones, conserved by the National Trust on Gower and Cardiff University are now on display at Rhossilli.

All of the bones were discovered around Gower's coastline and many belonged to animals which are now extinct - including an upper molar from a straight tusked elephant, thoracic (chest) vertebrae from a narrow nosed rhinoceros and a fallow deer antler.

Some of the bones are up to 120,000 years old and will be on display for the first time, in the National Trust Visitor Centre at Rhossili.

As well as the original bones, there are replicas available which any one can hold and feel.
