"Durchgangslager Hangö" day 1/15 of the 2017 excavation season

This was the day we had all been waiting for for almost one year. The 2017 excavation started with us locating a new untouched German dump site.

Jasmin speaking to the participants about excavation techniques.

Although it´s still too early to tell for sure, it seems like this one too has been left untouched after the Germans left Hanko and the transition camp in 1944.

A new dump full with different finds!

Although this was only the first day of this years excavation quite alot o unique finds turned up, among them a nice field made ring along with strap ends, buttons, glass bottles  and the very common German food ration cans.

A partly unfinished field made ring!

This week our team consists of some 20 + participants and four archaeologists. Truly wonderful people!
