Arefact of the Day August 4th

August 5, 2017

The artefact of the Day was found by Rufus – our youngest team member yet – on his first day on site. It was in a house floor he was digging with Rick, in between boards. It’s an ivory owl toggle (possibly even an owl-seal), the first owl we’ve found this year (it made Charlotta very happy). It is beautifully done, as all Nunalleq artefacts. Rufus said he thought it looked like a grape when he saw it in the ground.
