Lecturing about community archaeology, responsible metal detecting and WW2 conflict archaeology in Finland
I will be lecturing on the topic at the University of Helsinki U38 room 205 on the 1st of February 2016. The lecture is part of the studies in Museology and archaeology at the University. Please come and listen to it. The lecture is in Finnish but I will be summarizing it in English.

The lecture is labelled "Yhteisöarkeologian historia Suomessa ja metallinpaljastimen käyttö toisen maailmansodan arkeologisten kohteiden tutkimuksessa" this translates to "The history of community archaeology in Finland and the use of metal detectors in the archaeological research of Second World War sites".
