Excavating the neolithic in Helsinki day three

Day three of the trial excavations of the neolithic dwelling site in Pitäjänmäki, Helsinki. A nice amber pendant, a nail shaped tool, lots of neolithic pottery, burnt bone etc.

Baltic amber pendant.

Ka II:2 pottery with the typical rhombic decoration.

The trail excavation revealed a previously unknown area of the dwelling site and we will continue the excavations on this marvelous site next summer. All ages welcome <3 !

 Future archaeologists got to touch the 5500 year old artefacts.
