Paper items, with readable text after 75 yrs in the ground!
This weeks area is very different from the area we excavated last week. No cans, no bottles... but instead lots and lots of small finds! The find layer is very thin but maybe thats only a good thing as it allows us to gradually expend the excavation area.
Heer shoulderboard rank insignia.
Losantin gas contamination (skin protection agent) year 1937
German flare gun cartridge.
Wehrmacht sleeve rank patch.
The weather report for tomorrow is promises rain all day and lot´s of it... so sadly we can´t do any digging (because of the fragile paper artefacts in the ground). Instead our team will visit the battlefields of 1941 here in Hanko and of course the "Durchgangslager Hangö" exhibition at Hanko Museum.
