Mammoth, prehistoric bone art. This image of a mammoth has been scratched onto a piece of mammoth's tusk. It was found in the cave of La Madeleine, Dordogne, France. This area was occupied by a prehistoric people called the Magdalenians, during the Upper Paleolithic period from 18,000 to 11,000 BC. Archaelogical research has shown that the Magdalenian diet consisted largely of meat often obtained from hunting big game.
