Council Member Leila Froud watched a programme on Chanel 4 this week "Hannibal's Elephant Army: The New Evidence " which showed a team of scientists digging cores in a mountain clearing on the alps and found “disturbed soils” at depth, these were from when Hannibal’s army of horses and elephants from rested for a while en route to Rome!
