Exploring WW2 Hanko for the "Hanko 1941" project

We´re about to start a new WW2 conflict archaeology project that centers around the war between Finland and the Soviet Union on the Hanko front 22. June to 2.12.1941.

The project started today when we surveyed potential areas of interest and visited the Hanko Front Museum in Lappvik as well as the Russian war cemetery in Täktom.
