Video of the Week: Arrowhead Discovered as Glacier Retreats

This week’s Video of the Week is all about an arrowhead reportedly found close to the edge of a retreating glacier. In the video, posted on Twitter by Secrets of the Ice, a researcher walks along a glacier where he discovers the arrowhead and shaft.

“WHOA! It is out of this world!” the archeologist exclaims.

The location used to be a reindeer hunting area. The iron arrowhead is 13.8 cm long, 3.2 cm wide, and 35 g. Arrows used in hunting might have missed the reindeer or passed straight through the reindeer. This unique arrowhead has likely been lying in its location under the ice for hundreds of years.
