INT’L – HUNTING – 6,000-year-old hunting arrows revealed by melting ice in Norway

THE WEATHER NETWORK.COM/CA – December 3, 2020 – A growing number of archaeologists are venturing to glaciers and ice patches in hopes of discovering ancient items that were once frozen. A study published in The Holocene reports that researchers have discovered dozens of hunting arrows in Norway, some of which date back over 6,000 years.

The researchers discovered 121 artifacts in the Langfonne ice patch, a mountainous permafrost zone and an area where a 3,300-year-old shoe was discovered in 2006. An ice mass that was roughly 2.5 square kilometres covered this region during the 14th to 19th centuries, which eventually melted into three separate patches by 2014.

The researchers say that the ancient shoe discovery was a “modest beginning” of what the ice patch would reveal. The study says that most of the artifacts occurred in melting mountain ice and semi-stationary ice patches with permafrost underneath, which partly formed thousands of years ago. Due to the distribution of the artifacts, it is assumed that they were moved by shifting ice, meltwater, and other natural environmental processes.

The findings from Langfonne includes 68 arrows and five arrowheads, the oldest of which date back 6,200 years ago. Such a high volume of artifacts make Langfonne the most arrow-rich known ice patch site in the world. Other items that were discovered include bones, reindeer antlers, animal dung, and textiles. Two of the reindeer antlers were chopped, which the researchers say is a sign of human modification.

The researchers say that the arrows and reindeer remnants indicate that these artifacts were probably lost during prehistoric reindeer hunting, which likely took place on hot days in July and August when reindeer spent time on the ice to stay cool. Eight stone-built hunting blinds, which have not been dated, were also found near this ice patch.

While the hunting arrows that were discovered are relatively well-preserved, the researchers note that the repeated melting and refreezing of these objects and transportation by meltwater could degrade the objects. The study says that a researcher witnessed meltwater transporting an arrow shaft on a day of heaving melting in September 2014, which demonstrates the concerns about how some artifacts may no longer be preserved long-term.  [full article]
