Artefact of the Day 29/7

July 31, 2015

The last few days we have been founding a lot of basketry at the site, grass mats and baskets, different weaves and different sizes. The fantastic preservation at the site is no more apparent than when you’re faced with these astonishing pieces. The artefact of the day is a basket – originally found by Charlotta and then taken over by Sven (who’s been the grass master these couple of days). The basket is almost full, and has a rim of different wave. The craftsmanship is, as with most Nunalleq objects, very impressive.

    Thanks for the measure and the hand in the photo as an aid to understanding the size of the artifact.
