Discovery News: Ancient Weapons Emerge from The Ice

Ironically, weapons have been the topic of conversation on Ancient Digger this week, so I was thrilled to see that more ancient weapons have been revealed. As the ice patches melt away in Canada's Mackenzie Mountains, history is revealed in the form of 2400 year old ancient weapons.
The weapons, which include a 2,400-year-old spear throwing tools, a 1,000-year-old ground squirrel snare, and bows and arrows dating back 850 years, have been found high in the remote Mackenzie Mountains, a region where Mountain Boreal caribou abound in the summer months.
"Following that discovery,  we recovered more than 200 ancient hunting artifacts, with the oldest dating back more than 9,000 years," Greg Hare, the Yukon archaeologist who analyzed the original discovery, told Discovery News.
