Artefact of the Day, July 3

July 6, 2018

The artefact of the day on July 3d, and our first artefact of the day for the season was a small ivory fish. It was found by Charlotta in a house floor in top of a wall.

It is a fish lure made out if walrus ivory. Bits of red ocher pigment were inserted into the small holes on the side, some still intact. An additional insert, now missing, may have represented the dorsal fin.
