Artefact of the Day 27/7

July 28, 2015

IMG_5456The artefact of the day was found by Justin, who works at the Burke Museum as ethnology outreach coordinator at the Burke museum, on his one-day visit to Nunalleq from Washington.  It is a point sheath still lashed together and with the point inside. A pretty spectacular find – and need I say quite unique. Point sheaths are used to protect the points when not in use, and the come in all different sizes – from arrows to spears – depending on the point in need of protection. (A photo on the artefact will follow…)
