Cleaning and cataloging the excavation finds from "Deutsches Lager Hanko"

Our workroom at Kaapelitehdas in Helsinki.

Just another day @ the office :) Below are a few pictures from today. The material is both plentiful in a good sta and good state of preservation and very diverse. I will get a better camera in one weeks time and will post better photos after that!

 "Heiliges Creuz von Scheyern" a German  Catholic silver cross 

I´m surrounded by thousands and thousands of finds from the German WW2 transition camp in Hanko Finland 1942-1944.I feel very fortunate to  have this space to work in thanks to the Academy of Fine Arts, Vetenskapsrådet (Sweden) and my colleagues Jan Martti Kaila and Japo Knuutila.
