Woman Discovers Her Bracelet Is 10,000 Years Old Via National geographic
Fredericton, Canada (AHN) - A Canadian archeologist plans to carry out his excavations in New Brunswick after he came to know that a woman found a spearhead, as old as 10,000 years old, from a nearby area.
According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Joan Rennick found a spearhead seven years ago at Cape Spear, about 31 miles east of Moncton and thought it would be a good piece of jewelry.
"I put it in a little bracket and wore it around my neck for the last seven years," said Rennick.
The spearhead is about 5 inches long and is made of a dark rock.
However, she recently came to learn of its value after she saw a spearhead in National Geographic that looked very similar to hers.
She contacted Brent Suttie, an archeologist for the province of New Brunswick, who examined it and told her it was almost 10,000 years old.
"We may be able to find an intact site there," he said.
"We'd be able to garner so much more information, like what they were eating [10,000 years ago], how their tents were laid out ... all these kinds of things we didn't know before," he added.[/q]
