Curiosity of the Month

1

While wandering through The Wonders of the Peak exhibition, before reaching our infamous bear, you will pass several pieces of his fallen comrades. Featured here is the right side of a brown bear’s jaw bone, from Elderbush Cave in Staffordshire.

Considering its large size and the sharpness of its teeth, even to this day. It may be hard to imagine a great beast such as this roaming the Manifold Valley. Looking for something tasty coming its way.  So the next time you are out enjoying a nice stroll around the Peak District. Try to picture the silhouette of a bear off in the distance and bring a little bit of the past into your present.
