Ice Age Animals Live, with David and Jan

Mammoths in Devon, hippos in Cambridge, and lions in Derbyshire. Hard to believe, but these are some of the amazing animals that lived in Britain in the last Ice Age.

Join our Curator of Earth Sciences, David Gelsthorpe and Curator of Natural History at The Box, Plymouth, Jan Freedman to explore these incredible stories.


Jan and David show how Ice Age animals can give us an amazingly detailed pictures of climate change and exotic animals that roamed Britain. They share stories about their trips to the world famous Ice Age site, the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles and talk about the reintroduction of beavers and other Ice Age animals back into Britain today.
