The Neolithic meets WW2

Sry for not updating my blog for a while but believe me :)  I have been very busy doing archaeology. I hope that´s a good excuse... ;)

Yesterday we visited the archives of the Finnish Defense Forces and managed to look up some interesting and  apparently "previously unknown" flight recon pics of Hanko in july of 1942. The pictures (very crisp and clear in every detail) showed the first signs of German military presence in Tulliniemi 1942. Building materials stacked on the beach and some interesting track marks in the soil near the "Ukrainer Lager" among lots of other stuff. We will be combining these with up to date LiDar pictures in the near future thanks to funding for the project from "Sparbanksstiftelsen i Hangö".

Today photoshoot at Sanoma OY Tiede Magazine in connection to my upcoming publication of the three anthropomorphic neolithic clay figurines from Jokiniemi (1989-2002). Over two hours of intense professional work payed off, the results of which can be seen in TIEDE magazine in the spring of 2015 (february or april). The picture below is from an earlier session which was done for  the upcoming "Archaeology Night @ HEUREKA".
