Artefact of the Day July 16

July 17, 2018

The artefact of the day is a beautifully carved ivory fish lure which may represent a baby poke. Lures like this would be used in ice fishing to bring fish close enough to be speared.

It was found by Anna in one of our last house floors – which means the first occupation at site.

    It may be small but its surface seems to reflect a volume of history. Lovely shape and color.
