Interesting application

A couple of years ago all the known sites of archaeological interest in Finland were published on the web by the National Board of Antiquities in Finland.

Here´s an interesting link to an application of that same register which to my knowledge is made by Finnish amateur archaeologists. I got the address to this website I previously didn´t know about while lecturing about archaeology  in Salo a couple of weeks ago.


Let´s hope that all the information given out serves the purpose of protection of sites and not the opposite as sadly has been the case with the published shipwreck sites in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Finland... The protection of these fragile sites is now more than ever in the hands of all of us so let´s all act responsibly.
