"Eskimo Arrow end Blade" Discovered in the Escholtz Bay region near Kotzebue Alaska. The blade is of bluegreen chert and the base is of Woolly Mammoth Ivory with a drilled hole to attach to an arrow shaft, this was an easily replaced option in the event that the arrow blade was damaged and a new end blade was added. The lacing was replaced with modern hemp. A very nice artifact and exibits a craft of an age of twelve hundred years.
