Prehistoric life in the Arctic, human and other.

I could not find a suitable topic for this so thought to start one.
It's easy to forget just how far back Arctic background and exploration goes between all the focus on climate and modern times.
As general expectations are that thawing permafrost will yield more and more finds there may well be some interesting discoveries ahead.

If not already....spears from up to 28,000 years old made from mammoth and rhino here;

The article links to an earlier one with better geographical info.
