A deer antler found by a Tywyn family could be 6,000 years old, experts have suggested. Tabitha and Samuel Kendall, aged eight and nine, were with their dad, Mark, when they discovered the antler while exploring the ancient forest uncovered on the beach south of Tywyn, Wales, after the recent high tide.
Prof Henry Lamb, of Aberystwyth University, said he believed that the antler belonged to a red deer.
He added: “It’s the base of an antler, which looks like it may have come from quite a substantial stag.” In January 1919, the Cambrian News
reported on a similar find of deer antlers on the beach.
