Mammoths Roasted in Prehistoric Kitchen Pit

Central Europe's prehistoric people would likely have been amused by today's hand-sized hamburgers and hot dogs, since archaeologists have just uncovered a 29,000 B.C. well-equipped kitchen where roasted gigantic mammoth was one of the last meals served.

The site, called Pavlov VI in the Czech Republic near the Austrian and Slovak Republic borders, provides a homespun look at the rich culture of some of Europe's first anatomically modern humans.

Well, this should be proving that Mammoths/Mastadons could have existed in the same time with ancient man.

And the Ancient Man could have hunted mammoths for BBq-ing (or BBqued dead Mammoths ...also).

This could point out some info at the recent find of a Mammoth carving on a bone found at Vero beachin Florida. Read on atUniversity of Florida: Epic carving on fossil bone found in Vero Beach

Both instances point out that Ancient Man did exist in the same time frame as Mammoths.

It is interesting to read about their cooking methods, although the details in the article were a little sparse.

Also, I don't think anyone is questioning whether humans lived at the same time as mastodons. We did and we ate them for breakfast and even made shelters out of tusks and hides.

Hi Coredrill, an interesting post!
There is an ancient factory near Mukulov, Czech republic, called Dolni Vestonice. It is dated at 26000 years old.
The buildings and functions of this factory are interesting in itself, please see the link!

What you would find interesting about Dolni Vestonice is that numerous Mammoth bones have been found around this site.
It was first though that they were the product of hunts by the Paleolithic villiagers. Scholars no believe that the villiage was actually built next to a Mammoth Grave Yard.
Like modern elephants, when older mammoths suffered from worn teeth they migrated to marshy land where there was softer vegetation. Eventully too weak to leave the swamp ground, they would die there.
Their bones made great building materials, but more importantly, once the villiagers got their fires hot enough, the mammoth bones made excellent fuel thanks to their calorific value being of a value higher thn coke.
Within one building there is a horse-shoe shaped kiln, which would been the necessity for fires of this intensity.
So although Mammoth stakes does sound pretty appetising, they probably weren't eating them here.
Thats not to say that earlier peoples didn't get a taste though!

Thats a very cool find Mr Coredrill,

Cooking hasnt really changed much
but the size, just think of how much meat that is.
Could one tribal group consume that much or would such a huge feast would have been a special occasion, where the meat was shared amongst many family groups.

my phillipino side of the family still cooks goats and pigs in that fashion for very large family gatherings

Mammoth BBQ, that sounds absolutely delicious!
Just imagining these massive cuts of mammoth makes my mouth water.
Pretty cool stuff, I wonder if they had the ability and know-how to cure some of this meat and save it for trade or travelling?!?

Nice find!!!
