The Finnish Cultural Foundation "Mullankaivajat" grant to Sagalunds Museum

Today was a very good day. Next year we will be able to take the Ölmosviken dig to a whole new level together with Sagalunds Museum thanks  to a substantial grant from The Finnish Cultural Foundation!

Next years dig will involve local schools and schoolchildren of different ages from the island of Kemiönsaari (SW Finland). The students will participate hands on in the excavation of a late stone age/early bronze age dwelling site but there will be much, much more to the exciting overall experience than this.

Stay tuned for more information on this exiting neolithic adventure in the near future here and on Facebook.

Good news! It is now verified Esbo Arbetarinstitut will arrange an archaeological excavation in Espoo in 2019! There will also be a couple of interesting  lectures before the actual fieldwork kicks off (the dates of these will be revealed later).
