A horn-core of Bos primigenius excavated from the depth of 537.3–537.4 m in the late medieval
deposits of the second half of the 17th century to the 1st half of the 18th century AD is reported. This
record suggests that the aurochs survived in the Central Balkans a century later than the reported known
date (1627) from northern Poland.
