It has been discovered that Andalucía was as cold as Scandinavia – and Woolly Mammoths foraged for food and shelter
Remains have been found in Granada showing that the Pleistocene Period (a glacial period) – was prevalent in Spain during the ice age. This now proves that Spain was the most southerly part of Europe covered in snow and ice.
The Mammoth - a prehistoric colossal beast - arrived in Spain from Siberia 40,000 years ago but eventually died out some 4,000 years ago. The remains can now be viewed in the Granada Archaeology Museum in the City’s Science Park.
They Woolly Mammoths had big long trunks and tusks coming out if their head similar to Elephants today.
