Six samples of mammoth and one of woolly rhinoceros from the permafrost in Siberia were determined by the help of radio carbon (C14) in Laboratoriet for Radiologisk Datering in Trondheim, Norway. The determined age varies in five of the mammoth samples and the rhinoceros sample from 44,000 ± 3,500 to 33,500 ± 1,000 years. However, one of the samples of mammoth (from Tajmyr) was considerably younger - only 11,450 ± 250 years old.
