Volunteering at Community Archaeology

A ground slate "bayonet" or spear point

I spent the last two days working with Molly at the community archeology site in Kodiak.  I got to do a lot more excavating than I did last year at the Penguq site.  The primary artifacts we have been finding at this site are ground slate spear points that were likely used for hunting seals.  I was thrilled to find one today even if it was only a broken-off tip.  Our Friends John and Katelyn joined us this afternoon. It was another beautiful day in Kodiak.  Tomorrow John and I are leaving for a few days to take his skiff up to Afognak to do some exploring.
