Fossilized mammoth's tooth
|Description||Large fossilized tooth from a mammoth. It is composed of stratified layers and the end has separated along one of the natural striae. The flat but damaged grinding surface is uppermost in the image, the root being the striped lower part. It was turned up in the ground when the Green company dry-dock at Blackwall was enlarged in 1908, after the firm had become part of the ship repairers Green and Silley Weir.|
