The results of chemical analyses of 4 prehistorical red deer antlers and of 2 giant elk antlers are presented. The differences to the results of analyses for recent antlers are discussed. Increased concentrations of manganese, iron, and fluoride and lower concentrations of magnesium are due to diagenetic changes of the prehistorical antlers during their storage.
