Jokiniemi day 7/22

Today we found our first solid proof of the site being occupied during the late neolithic corded ware culture. In the midst of all comb ceramic pottery this small rimsherd made our day. The ornamentation is identical to a vessel found in a neolithic grave some 10 km to the west from our dig (Vantaa Jönsas).

Battle Axe culture rimsherd.

Other neolithic finds are of course also accumulating rapidly. A fragment of a flint knife or arrowhead, a nail shaped slate tool being among the more interesting ones today.

 Grooved "nail shaped" slate object.
