Whale Bone From a Thule Summer Settlement Devon Island


This is a whale vertebra and a very old and weathered one too on the site of a summer camp used by Thule people, the ancestors of all modern Inuit. They replaced the Dorset Culture which preceded them spreading across the Arctic from about 100 to 1500 AD having entered this part of Canada around 1300 AD.

Air temp: +3º C Latitude: 74º 30' N Longitude: 83º 31' W

 

These are pictures from a cruise to the High Arctic in August 2010, from Resolute Bay Canada to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
