Intact woolly mammoth figurine from the Swabian Jura,  Baden-Württemberg, Germany.   Mammoths played an important role for humans during the Pleistocene epoch, 1.8 million to 10,000 years ago. They provided the hunter/gatherers with much-needed meat, skins, and building materials for their huts. As mammoths were likely plentiful, with a population size of several million during the early and mid Pleistocene, the impact of hunting is believed to have been small during that period.
