Finally back @ Vävarsbacka

Today we started the second leg of the Vävarsbacka II dig. New fresh team of volunteers, new excavation area, same old archaeologists ;)

Digging layer one of excavation area two.

As anticipated the first excavation layer proved very rich in finds. Todays treasures included pottery of  a variety of different styles (and ages) fragments of stone artefacts, whetstones and burnt seal bones.

The new excavation team worked like a dream despite the heat, mosquitos, agressive horseflies  and the dust. Below some portrait photos of the diggers :)
