Alf-Gunnar Kranck excavation photos found

Got a telephone call yesterday from Gunilla Kranck the widow of the very active amateur archaeologist and photographer Alf-Gunnar Kranck. She told me that she had found a huge pile of photos that Alf-Gunnar took while participating in different excavations from 1987 until his death in the early 90´s.

This is extremely good news because very few pictures exist of the early amateur archaeologists at work in southern Finland and Vasa (western Finland) from those years. I will visit Gunilla and start sorting out the pictures beginning on the first of march.
