Artefact of the Day 14/8

August 18, 2014

IMG_4776DSC_5290The artefact of the day was found by Sven in the large house floor in what we think might be the mens house, the Qasgiq. It’s an amber bead. Amber was a rarity in this part of Alaska, and hence very valuable. It cannot be sources locally, but must have been traded a fair distance,  and is obviously valuable. This is the only amber object we have found at the Nunalleq site.
