LATE PLEISTOCENE FOSSIL FIND IN SVALBARD: THE OLDEST REMAINS OF A POLAR BEAR (URSUS MARITIMUS PHIPPS, 1744) EVER DISCOVERED
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j....
During recent fieldwork in Svalbard, a well preserved subfossil left mandible of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus Phipps, 1774) was discovered. A 14C age determination shows that it is older than 45 Ky (kilo-years), and an age determination with infrared-stimulated luminescence—together with the stratigraphic position of the bone—suggests that it is of Eemian–Early Weichselian age: 130–110 Ky old. This makes the find the oldest remains of a polar bear ever discovered. Morphological analyses of the mandible suggest that it comes from a fully grown male that was similar in size to extant male polar bears. The comparative study of other available subfossil polar bear remains did not reveal any significant change in size of polar bears during the Late Quaternary.
AH AH AH! "U." maritimus tyrannus has been PWNED even before we knew it :P!

Ingólfsson & Wiig (2008) wrote:
"Apart from the Poolepynten specimen, the two other reported finds of polar bear remains presumed to be from EarlyWeichselian deposits are from Kew Bridge, London, and from cave sediments at Nordcemgrotta, in northern Norway (Table 1). The Kew Bridge specimen was dated on the basis of the stratigraphical position of the find: below it, stratigraphically, were sediments containing warm, interglacial forest fauna, thought to be of last interglacial (Eemian) age. There are no absolute age determinations for the fossil, but it has been assumed to be around 70-Ky old. The Kew Bridge find is special in that it is an ulna of a very large animal, considerably
larger than present-day polar bears. Kurtén (1964) assigned it to a polar bear subspecies, Ursus maritimus tyrannus. The Kew Bridge specimen has recently been reinvestigated by scientists at London’s Natural History Museum, and they are now confident that the Kew animal was a type of brown bear, U. arctos (Andy Currant, pers. comm. 2008). The finds from Nordcemgrotta were radiocarbon dated to 39–42 Ky B.P., and a 230Th/234U dating of calcareous concretions in the laminated sediments above the sedimentary horizon containing the fossil polar bear bones assigned them a minimum age of 70  8.5 Ky B.P.(Lauritzen et al. 1996)."
