Nadlok and the Origin of the Copper Inuit

Ornaments and amulets

Pendants with drilled suspension holes were made from teeth, including a dog or wolf canine (bottom left), a caribou incisor (top right) and a canid carnassial (middle left). A canid long bone was also drilled for suspension (shown below). Also found was a bilaterally carved bone object, apparently drilled for suspension at one end (bottom right).
