Arrowheads and Other Points: Myths and Little Known Facts
Archeologists in Spain have discovered a 5,year-old crystal dagger dating all the way back to prehistoric civilizations. In the megalithic tomb of Montelirio tholos, located in southwestern Spain, researchers discovered a treasure trove of artifacts. Within it were 25 crystal arrowheads, a core for making the weapons, and most remarkable, a crystal dagger dating back as far as BCE.
Expeditions to survey the Langfonne ice patch in and , both particularly warm summers, also revealed copious reindeer bones and antlers, suggesting that hunters used the ice patch over the course of millennia. Their hunting technique stayed the same even as the weapons they used evolved from stone and river shell arrowheads to iron points. Now the research team is revealing the finds in a paper published today in the journal Holocene. A record-setting total of 68 complete and partial arrows and five arrowheads were ultimately discovered by the team on and around the melting ice patch—more than archaeologists have recovered from any other frozen site in the world. Since archaeologists started systematically surveying melting ice sites 15 years ago, ice patches from Norway to North America have yielded almost perfectly-preserved artifacts from long-ago time periods.
