Contrary to what was thought until now, Siberians of the Iron Age may have hunted mammoths infrequently and doing it only in certain cases in which, for example, they needed their fangs for hunting or tool-making. It is true that mammoth meat was eaten but it was not one of the main objectives.

Humans who lived between 33,500 and 31,500 years ago hunted animals mainly for their ivory, so hunting could not be the cause of the extinction of the mammoths, as reported by scientists in recent research.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
