Woolly Mammoth: Secrets from the Ice is a documentary presented by English anatomist Dr. Alice Roberts (b 19 May 1973) that reveals some of the secrets of one of the most widely known extinct animals ever. Humans have been transfixed by the Wolly Mammoth since the end of the last ice age when there were still herds of them roaming the continents of Asia and Europe. Despite many people knowing about the great Woolly Mammoth until recently very little was known about them despite ancient humans living along side them for so long; few documented accounts exist.
Because of their habitat un-earthed Mammoths tend to be very well preserved in ice. Alice Roberts visits the scientists who are working on building a picture of the beast using newly developed scientific techniques which will show how they lived and how they became extinct. In this Woolly Mammoth documentary the origins of the Mammoth in the tropics are explained as well as the human role in their extinction.
