among the items were a box of roughly ground flour, fragments of bows, three flint arrowheads, a container made out of cow’s horn, and some small pieces of leather.

Hmmm, sounds like they were planning on laying seige to some route.

I wondered if they argued about using the cow's horn as being ethical.

Thoglist... that's good stuff there. Thought about cross posting this to the Historical and Outstanding Mountaineering Rucksacks thread.

I wonder if the Arrowheads were regular ones or aid length shorties?
