18th Century whale skeleton found

Meyers Konversionlexikon 1888

An 18th Century whale skeleton has been found in River Thames. It is clear that the Whale was killed for its meat, bone and oil. And it is suggested that the Whale might have been harpooned

At an estimated of 16 meters long, the skeleton of such an amazing animal must have been a big task to move!
