Risch-Rotkreuz ZG, partial mammoth skeleton
In July 2015, a tusk and several bone fragments (marked in red) of an adult mammoth bull have been found on a construction site in Risch-Rotkreuz, Canton of Zug. They have been dated to the end of the last ice age at around 15‘000 BC by radiocarbon measurements.
