The HEUREKA Jokiniemi 2015 dig starts next Monday

The community archaeology excavation of one of the central neolithic sites in S Finland will continue for one month. Some 135+ people will participate. In the last few days we have been working with the preparations of the dig. Car rental, barracks and lavatories, shelters for rain and many other things. Thanks to the arranger Heureka the Finnish Science Centre and the always very kind and helpful  city of Vantaa all has gone according to plan :)

Removing the topsoil

The main excvation area is situated on a former stone age seashore. The elevation of the site today is 21-22,5 m which translates to around 3400-3500 BC .

I will be updating here on a daily basis so stay tuned... ;)
