Re: consumption of mammoth meat
I believe the Solzhenitsyn reference to prisoners eating ancient fish comes
from the very beginning of the Gulag Archipelago, Volume 1, though my copy is
at home too. Solzhenitsyn remarks, as I recall, that the novelty of the story
must have caused the censors to let their guard down, thus allowing a rare
official reference to the desperation of the prisoners.
