Artefact of the Day July 7

July 8, 2018

The artefact of today is an artefact never seen before at Nunalleq. It is a bracelet of small clam shells, held together by a woven braid of grass. The braid was woven across the hinge of the shell, creating a fragile but striking ornament.


It was found by Hannah in a small house floor under a boardwalk in the northeast corner of our excavation block.

    Absolutely amazing something that looks so fragile has lasted so many years. Nice find Hannah.
