Abstract: Reports discovery of reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) and polar bear (Ursus maritimus) remains at recently deglaciated site along margins of Mittivakkat Glacier. Radio carbon dating determines age of samples to 720 ¹⁴C years and 350 ¹⁴C years respectively. Also reports exposure of peaty material in August 2006 due to ice recession close to site of reindeer remains, dated to 1530¹⁴C years. Discusses local glacial extent and local climate in context of findings.
