Thousands of First Nations artifacts found in British Columbia

Archaeologists working in Vernon, B.C. have uncovered thousands of First Nations artifacts, some of which date back more than 6,000 years.

“One of the cool things we found … was what we think are the remains of a fishing net,” archaeologist Clinton Coates told CBC News.

“We found these 30 flat, notched rocks spread out over about three metres. The net was left there with the rocks and over time the net would rot away.”

Thousands of arrowheads, spear points and hammer stones are among the finds.”
