The 12 centimetres long his arrowhead was found at 1400 metres above sea level at the mountain Store Ishaug in Eidfjord, not far from the Fossli and Vøringsfossen.

the News was first reported on Hordaland county council's website.

his arrowhead was found by a snowdrift of Ernst Hagen, who has a cabin in the area.

He decided quickly to take his arrowhead to the Hordaland county council, who accept such findings.

According to archaeologist by fylkeskonservatoren Tore Slinning is it not made similar findings in Hardanger in the past.

– This is a very rare finding. To find a such arrowhead alone is that to find the stylus in the høystakken, says Slinning to the NRK.

Increased chance to make discoveries

Climate change and the meltdown of the drifts and glaciers makes that the chance of so-called stray finds increases. Archaeologists in recent years have had expeditions in the mountains of Hordaland and examined around the snow drifts.

the mountain range that his arrowhead was found in, they had not been investigated. Slinning seems, therefore, it was really luck that the Garden discovered it. For about his arrowhead had been left out, it would probably weathered and disappeared entirely in the course of a few years. Things that are made in wood or other organic material will disappear even faster.

INTEREST: At fylkeskonservatoren have found of his arrowhead attracted attention. – My stalltips is that it at least is a thousand years old, " says archaeologist Mike Sinning.

Our Garden is amazed at how big the interest for his arrowhead has been.

It was a bit more of a resurrection than I had thought. They believe that it may originate from the early iron age, " says Garden.

the top of the Mountain where he found it is not a natural jaktsted, and why his arrowhead appeared right there is so far a mystery. From before it is known that there was a lot of activity and the recovery of iron in the area around the Sysendalen throughout the iron age.

– Maybe there was a hunter who was on top to scout, or a skadeskutt animals that fled and died up there, " says Garden.

There are special found a now handed over to the university museum in Bergen, which has been commissioned to date and preserve his arrowhead.
