'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. '
