A fine well preserved example of another harpoon carved from caribou antler, Bering Sea Thule.
This particular harpoon does not have a groove for an end blade but instead the tip is the blade. A truly remarkable discovery and a squirrel did the work. Just under four inches long and used to harpoon seals mainly. I did not excavate any farther yet it is probable that there is additional findings.
