Artefact of the day 17/7/17

July 18, 2017

Only Anna has been digging in house floor today, so it may not be so surprising that she found the artefact of the day. It is a tool handle with an inserted tooth (probably a muskrat) – but the tooth is not inserted for carving at the tip of the handle, but for keeping a reserve carving tool (tooth) when the one you used broke, or possibly if you needed a different size. Very neat and handy!
