A fossil of a bizarre shark with a "buzz saw" bite, found in the Brooks Range -- then lost for 29 years in the Smithsonian archives -- is back in Alaska for an exhibit in Seward, thanks in part to Ketchikan artist Ray Troll.

A film that chronicles the excavation of a 200-year-old village along the banks of the Kobuk River -- and what happened when archaeologists found human remains -- is scheduled to play Friday night at the Amchorage Museum.
