"Finnish Idol"

March and April are hectic months for the field archaeologists in Finland. The writing of last years excavation reports and the planning of the upcoming short field season is in full swing and the money is as short as it always was ;).

Neolithic pottery "boxed".

As if all of this wasn´t enough I have indulged myself in writing about the neolithic anthropomorphic clay figurines from Jokiniemi S Finland for Tiede magazine. The article was published yesterday and I have to admit I feel a little bit proud about the whole thing.

The front cover of Tiede (Science) magazine 3/2015.

Despite the articles drawbacks or  faults (meaning You can´t always advertise the phrase "This is only a hypothesis") I still think the article is a lot better than nothing at all. Archaeology is and always will be not so much about definite proof as about new evidence tested with what could have been an what absolutely not. Enjoy and above all join the excavations at Jokiniemi in the summer of 2015! It looks kinda grey at the moment but believe me... summer is here soon :).
