On the roof of the Brandalhytta, there is a skull of a walrus. This skull has a history. In 2015, it belonged to a dead corpse on the beach. Someone cut of the ivory teeth and stole it. Some years later parts of the skeleton washed ashore on the east side of Brandalpunkte. We were not allowed to collect it, but it ended up on the roof of the hut.

It is still an impressive artefact, which would fit very well in the zooarchaeological collection of the University of Groningen.

Inside the hut, Roos writes in the logbook, with her weapon almost pointing at me.
