BEACH HAVEN, N.J. (AP) — A boy playing on a New Jersey beach has unearthed a 10,000-year-old arrowhead possibly used by ancient Native Americans to spear fish or hunt mastodon.

Ten-year-old Noah Cordle and his family were vacationing on the Long Beach Island last week when he found it at the edge of the surf in the community of Beach Haven.

The Springfield, Virginia family contacted the Archaeological Society of New Jersey to check it out.

The president, Greg Lattanzi, who is also a curator at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, tells the Asbury Park Press that the arrow point probably dates back 8,000 to 11,000 years. He says it’s extremely rare for amateurs to find such artifacts.

The family says they plan to donate it to a museum.
