Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Archaeology of the Thompson River Region, British Columbia

Bridge. Two of the specimens of this lot show well-preserved impressions of winding, exactly as would be the case if they formed parts of a harpoon-point.' A bone harpoon-point made wholly of one piece of material, and with a barb,_ was found (fig. 337, a). The barb, however, is broken off. The base is wedge-shaped, and could easily be inserted in the split end Of a handle. Such harpoon-points, I was told by Baptiste, an old shaman who is still familiar with the ancient implements Of 'the Indians, were used for spearing beaver.2 A similar point, also said to be used for beaver-spearing, was secured by Mr. Teit from the Indians at Spences Bridge. Two other harpoon-points (fig. 33 7, b, c) are much burned, and, as both are broken, their original shape cannot be determined. There are many pieces still less perfect, which were found scattered on the surface of the large burial-ground at Kamloops, while other pieces were found with cremated bones of children at the Government Site.

Fig. 338 (2 illustrates a bone object found on the surface of the Government Hill at Kamloops. It has been bleached and somewhat warped by the sun. The notch in the end extends slightly down the sides, but shows no rubbing. Fig. 338 6 illustrates a similar-shaped speci men made of wood, which was found in a woven pbuch in the grave at Spences Bridge. A 5 Still adhering to it are shreds of cedar-bark, while traces of red ochre cover it. The notch is rectangular, and the other end Of the specimen is pointed like a sharpened lead pencil. These specimens seem to be fore shafts for arrows or spears, the former possibly for a spear, while the latter, being delicate, would be more appropriate for a small arrow.
