In March 2000, while fishing for flatfish, a Dutch fishig vessel from the village of Urk brought up a fossilized lower jaw bone of a Saber-toothed cat (Homotherium latidens) from the bottom of the North Sea. At that time it was thought that this Eurasian species went extinct some 300,000-400,000 years ago. When the jawbone was radiocarbon-dated, the startling result was an age of 28,000 years. This sensational finding has been the incentive to produce this informative and abundantly-illustrated book, providing never-before-published pictures.
