More dark heritage..."Luftwaffe" porcellain and more from the German dump at "Durchgangslager Hanko"

Today we continued the excavation of the large German WW2 dump. We are now digging excavation layer three. Many well preserved porcellain items turned up and, as expected... many, many more intriguing finds of metal, plastic and glass!

"Luftwaffe"  1937 made Porcellain mug!

As we have a new excavation team this week it was fun that so many nice finds turned up already on day one.

Mother and son  on todays dig :)

Today we also succeeded in finding one probably DRK (Deutsches Rotes Creutz Schwestern) related item too. The finds related to females working within the German transition camp are very hard to find as there were only some 40 female personnel and 4000 German soldiers.

 Hair clip barrette

Below are a few of the other items found today. Big hopes for tomorrow when we will hit excavation layer four of thei ineteresting area.

German lighter

Sovjet (?) spoon.

 Cough medicine bottle.
