Border patrol agents in Patagonia have stumbled across two pieces of ancient pottery which date back 1,000 years.

The agents found one intact ancient pot and a piece of another pot while patrolling in the rugged Patagonia Mountains last week, according to a news release form Customs and Border Protection.
