Find of aurochs horn in a ditch from the 9th – 10th century in Nitra
Languages of publication
A horn extension belonging to a very robust adult individual (bull) of a free-living aurochs (Bos primigenius) was found in the supply/waste ditch from the second half of the 9th century, or the first half of the 10th century. It is one of the youngest proofs of the aurochs occurrence in Slovakia (the youngest find is from Nitra-Chrenová from the close of the 10th centuty, or the beginning of the 11th century), which corresponds with the era of the disappearance of aurochs in this part of Europe.
