A 1,500-year-old arrow was unearthed this year in Norway, nestled amidst rocks

A 1,500-year-old arrow was unearthed this year in Norway, nestled amidst rocks. 

According to the research team, the arrow was likely encased in ice and subsequently carried downhill as the ice melted. Predating the era of the Vikings, the arrow was discovered by a group of Norwegian archaeologists. Found snugly between two rocks, the arrow's preservation was described as "remarkable," although not flawless. The presence of worn sinew and tar, which once bonded parts of the arrow, indicates that it may have been exposed and refrozen multiple times since its original loss.

Lars Holger Pile, an archaeologist affiliated with Secrets Of The Ice, informed Newsweek that over the past 15 years, more than 200 arrows have emerged from the ice in Innlandet County, Norway. The oldest of these arrows dates back 6,000 years. Pile explained, "This location was a hunting ground for reindeer, so the arrows were misplaced when the hunters failed to hit their target, causing the arrows to vanish into the snow. It may have been a missed shot, but from an archaeological standpoint, it was a bull's eye."
