It is now only one week until we will start the large scale, three week conflict archaeology excavation of "Deutsches Lager Hanko" (27.6.-15.7.2016). The excavation is part of my doctoral dissertation about the archaeology of the former German transition camp. All finds are kept by Hanko Museum.
I will be updating here on a daily basis when the excavations start!
The conflict archaeology excavation will take place on Cape Tulliniemi in Hanko S. Finland. The area is mostly a natural reserve (the green areas)-
Welcome to Finland and Hanko, archaeology students Jasmin Jyrä, Anni Tolppanen and Jordan 'Paddy' Paddison (University of Aberdeen dpt. of archaeology) and of course Anu Varjo (University of Helsinki dpt. of archaeology)! It´s a priviledge to have You here!
I would also like to welcome all the over 30 excavation participants from different parts of Finland and abroad!
The excavation is organised and financed by Hangö Sommaruniversitet. Part of the accomodation costs are covered by "Taideyliopisto" for the "Poetic Archaeology" project! We use Leica Zeno 20 in our research.
