Dwarf elephant tooth
Tooth and jawbone of the dwarf elephant Palaeoloxodon cypriotes, between 10, 000 and 800, 000 years old. This fossil tooth and jawbone was one of the first pieces of evidence that miniature elephants once lived on Cyprus. It was discovered by intrepid collector Dorothea Bate, the first female scientist employed at the Natural History Museum.
