Archaeologists working on a site in Alaska were dumbfounded to find a "Bronze Buckle" that they believe is some 1,400 years old.

The "artifact" was found in sediment as they dug on a site where a 1,000-year-old Inupiat home was built. The two inch by one inch object - which seems to have been molded - appears to have been part of a harness. "The object appears to be older than the house we were excavating by at least a few hundred years," research assistant John Hoffecker said.
