Can We expect to Find Ice-Age Artifacts in the Newly Melting Ice?

Our friends at Secrets of the Ice have some answers…

The melting of mountain ice in recent years has led to the recovery of artefacts dating back to the Stone Age. The finds appear to be getting older and older as the ice melts back. This begs the question: How old can the artefacts from the ice actually get? Is it possible that future melting could reveal finds that date back to the last Ice Age?


Head over to their website for more information in this ever-growing topic. There’s even a photo of our old field colleague Craig Lee with the damaged, but preserved Yellowstone dart that dates back to beyond 10,000 B.P.
