Artefact of the day 2/8

August 3, 2012

The artefact of the day was found by Josh on top of the house floor of level 2. It is a beautifully preserved ulu handle – condition as new. Ulus were women’s knifes, used all over the Arctic. They are still used today, only now the blades are made of steel rather than stone.
