          Pretty incredible but I wish they had some better pictures for us. I guess they'll come in time.

            Has to obviously be the ice that preserved the organics.
            I don’t think I would live through a find like that .

                I remember this article Charlie. What really struck me most about this one is the little know copper culture that existed up north.

              I was just about to post these stories and found this thread.

              So awesome. The power of ice preservation.

              Imagine hunting those grounds after a major ice melt....

                The ground slate point. I think the stem is missing?

                    It’s incredible, I love when stuff like this pops up. Artifacts like that help take away the guess work about how things where made and assembled. My heart would have stopped had I found that!

                      This older report, focused on the archaeology of the Yukon Ice Patches, is relevant to the most recent discovery, and very educational.
