Artefact of the day 18th of July

July 19, 2017

The artefact of the day is a kayak prow – the first one we’ve ever found at Nunalleq. It was found by Anna in an extension of a wall, where it had ben reused as a stake for supporting the sod. Most of our kayak parts have been found like this – reused as something else. The kayak brow is beautifully carved, as all the wooden artefacts from Nunalleq, and it is interesting, for it confirms the difference between the Nunalleq kayaks and the historical kayaks from this area, ¬†represented in the kayak models.

    What an excellent find and that you knew what it was. Perhaps its life was saved by its reuse.
