It was a joint expedition in the framework of the 2nd International Summer Field School Paleobiogeocenoses of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic Era in the Northern hemisphere.

Preliminary analysis indicates that many mammoths had diseases of the skeletal system. Animals suffering from mineral starvation were attracted to the place of the archeological dig where many years ago they came to get macro- and micro-nutrients with the food.

The uniqueness of the Wolf’s Mane location lies in the geological age of the remains, the youngest of which is about 11,000 years old. Woolly mammoths were already extinct at that time almost everywhere in Eurasia. This area was a refugium for the Pleistocene large mammals, it has been one of the last places where existed these representatives of the mammoth fauna. Their remnants younger than 12,000 years mainly came from the areas of the Arctic.

Among the unique finds of the joint expedition are 11 stone artifacts. Products made of quartzite and quartz could be used by ancient people as tools for butchering animals and for the treatment of solid materials - bones and tusks.
