You truly don't find those fully intact all that often. Fragments or the tips or other components, yeah, but they usually don't survive in one piece.

'Amazing' archeological find in Yukon's melting ice patches — an intact atlatl dart | CBC News

'"We'll do our best to keep it as fully intact as possible, because I think that's where the true value lies — in being able to have that fully intact piece of history," she said. '

'Over millennia, woodland caribou would gather on the ice patches during the summer months. '

'"So that was a pretty amazing find," she said. \u200bThe atlatl dart was found a little over a week ago by a helicopter pilot who had flown some researchers to the ice patches. '

'Many of those tools — frozen for centuries under ice and snow — are now being uncovered as the ice patches melt due to climate change. '

'A few weeks before the spear was found, archeologists made another discovery in the ice patches — a ground-stone point. '
