Jokiniemi day 7

Today was the last day of the Alumni (Helsinki University) part of the dig. This is however not the end of the excavation. Tomorrow local amateur archaeologists from "Ango" will start their work at the site.

This day was as great as all days before. Although the cultural layer is slowly fading the finds are extremely interesting even at this late stage of the dig. The flint artefacts are of course nice but todays "best" find was late neolithic or pottery with a scratched surface.

A test pit at the hight of about 19 m asl. proved extremely interesting too!! A very dark and moist cultural layer showed up underneath some 40 cm:s of topsoil  Now this is what I call a neolithic cultural layer!
