The Nature of Things Secrets from the Ice

The Nature of Things Secrets from the Ice

All over the world the climate is changing and glaciers are melting out incredible discoveries. In Canada’s Yukon, finds have included weapons, bones and the preserved body of a man, centuries old, complete with his clothing, his personal possessions and even the contents of his last meal in his stomach. He was named Kwäday Dän Ts'ìnchi: Long Ago Man Found. The discovery made worldwide news as the First Nations took custody of the remains. “You now have a body,” says Diane Strand of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nation. “You now have a human being, you now have a relative.” And in Norway, hunting weapons and clothing dating back thousands of years are evidence of industrial-level reindeer hunts to feed the Viking voyagers.
