Långåmossarna research 2.

The finds from layer one are now cleaned and neatly arranged in archive boxes.The first excavation layer included potsherds from at least six different vessels (calculation based on the rim sherds). The pots seem to have been rather small with a diameter of only around 20-30 cm:s.
Three small fragments of anthropomorphic clay figurines that went unnoticed during the excavation were nice to "find again" among the numerous potsherds. The finds from layer one also included three fragments of polished stone tools as well as flakes of quartz, porfyrite and black slate The identified bones were all seal bones. Tomorrow it´s time for layer two... can´t wait :)

 Pottery, pottery, pottery...
