Archaeological discoveries threatened by changing climate conditions in Norway

Scandinavian country is home to some of the infamous archaeological discoveries. The arrow shafts, sandals, and some of the preserved archaic animal remains are marvelous depictions of nomad life. A new report from the Norway region gave a cache of detail on the archaeological discoveries. It speaks of the remote ice patches in the country. The future discoveries make it to the risk of melting away from climate change.

The archaeological discoveries include a 6,100-year-old arrow shaft. There is also information on the 3,000-year sandal. And the discovery also incorporates the preserved bird corpse. The 2000 BCE timeline is the highlight of these objects. The icy mountains and fjords make up most of northern Norway. The object summarizing the report also comes from the NTNU University Museum. The look of a country’s glacial archaeological discoveries is greatly highlighted.

Birgitte Skar, NTNU professor, and archaeologist states, “Objects and remains of animals and human activity have been found that we didn’t even know existed. They include everything from horse tack and clothing to arrows with tips made of shells, wooden shafts, and feathers. Not a year goes by without surprising finds that shift the boundaries of our understanding.”

There has been a spate of archaeological discoveries. However, the outlook presented by Skar continues to regard climate change as a major hindrance in future archaeological discoveries. The countries are also trying to battle climate change at the same time being the main cause of it. The funding issue is another hindrance to archaeological extraction and detail.

To give a proper insight, A recent report explained that 226 square miles of Norwegian snow clarify the impossible archaeological discoveries in the region. The glaciers are slowly melting away. The satellite images also declare that 40 percent of it has melted away.

There is a serious need for governmental resources to monitor climate change. The discoveries and biological also remain to continue to stay under the ice patch.
