Heer "Urlauber" about to embark on a Finnish train that will take them to Hanko Finland.
Until the end of december 2015 I will be working full time with my conflict archaeology project for "Poetic Archaeology" . The project is about documenting "Deutsches Lager Hanko", a large German WW2 transition camp in S Finland. The work is part of my doctoral dissertation on the German camp.
Cover of a German troop carrier log book from 1941-1942.
Our "Poetic" team including Jan Martti Kaila and Japo Knuuttila are at the same time embarking on a long and sad road trip, visiting different German WW2 camps in Europe in a couple of weeks. Iwill be posting photographs of their journey here as I get them. At the same time I´m researching the long lost sad stories of the "Urlauber" of the Eismeerfront.
At the same time the Jokiniemi dig is into it´s last week, the finds are accumulating rapidly and I have a gut feeling that something very big is coming up soon, maybe even tomorrow :).
Community archaeology is for everyone regardless of age :)
As are the nice neolithic potsherds...
