    I doubt a child of the bronze age in Britain would have ever seen a hippo? Looks like a pig to me, not a hedgie.

    Wow that is sooo cool! Thanks for sharing. Now we know hedgies have been beloved for many years. But then we already suspected as much.

    My thoughts exactly :-).

    Even without my archaeology background I\'d say it looked like a pig .
