Hammerstones from Fleur de Lys.
Hammerstones were part of a larger tool kit utilised by the Dorset Palaeoeskimos.
These stones are natural rocks modified (usually on one end) by cultural activities. These tools
were hand-held and used in a pounding manner similar to modern hammers. At Fleur de Lys
hammerstones were likely used during the quarrying process.
