Stone arrowheads found in Quebec

Archaeologists working in northern Quebec have found stone arrowheads which date back 4,000-7000 years.

When archaeological crews were digging near the Smokey Hill rapids last summer, they expected to find relics and pottery dating back about 150 years.

So it came as a surprise when one discovery was linked to pre-European times.

The rough-looking stone blades and arrowheads were found by a local community member, who brought them to the Waskaganish Cultural Institute.
