Glacier reveals 5,400-year-old Stone Age arrow

The oldest artefact ever found in a Scandinavian snowdrift glacier has researchers abuzz. “We’ve never seen 5,000-year-old objects melt out of the ice before,” says an archaeologist from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Amazing find.
Sad to thing that since then we have expanded on weapons. Dear lordy knows what ammo they will find here in another 5,000 years time. But doubt todays will not last as long or be in such good condition. They do not make things like the old days anymore.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

That is the one good thing about global warming: we will find a lot of old objects where the glaciers used to be.

I think finding a few more Oetzis would be interesting, if they are found before they rot.

Sorry but I go by what humans bones are found in the Americas the oldest 14, 500 bc,  no matter if humans came across the straits or from the pacific.Firestone is all wrong there was no meter that hit the Americas or the 30,000 years points they claim were found that some  archaeologist say were only naturely made, or bones that were chew by animals not humans.To me there has to be older humans bones to be found that go with those points of which there are none found. Gee guys we can date the dino bones  that are found. Just give me a human bone found in the Americas that was dated that long ago.:)
