In June 1964 a fragment of a mammoth-tusk was found in Gudbrandsdalen, Norway. The tusk was discovered by Mr. T. Øyarden in a large gravel pit south of the river Lågen, about 2-3 km west of Kvam railway station. The gravel pit, used by the local road authorities, lies beside the local road south of the river Lågen and is about 100-150 m long, 30--40 m deep and 15-20 m broad. It consists of distinctly stratified deposits; coarse gra vel containing comparatively large stones alternates with thinner layers of fine, stratified sand.
