A 9,000 year old window to the past:
Investigating Yukon's Ice Patches.
P. Gregory Hare, Senior Projects Archaeologist, Government of Yukon, Canada
For the past 15 years melting alpine icefields in Canada's Yukon Territory have revealed unprecedented examples of ancient hunting weapons and tools. Archaeologists and First Nation researchers have amassed an extraordinary collection of fragile organic artifacts, some locked in the ice for as much as 9,000 years. These tools provide new glimses into the lives of subarctic hunter gatherers in their relentless pursuit of caribou and bison. P. Gregory Hare will discuss objects and their place in Glacial Archaeology.
