  • Only recently have archaeologists come to realize how widely dispersed and relatively abundant metal objects were in the ancient Arctic. Four independent research teams have recently recovered and identified troves of metal artifacts and other clues to its use at five sites in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland. The discoveries are giving new insight into the complexity of ancient Arctic society.
