Espoo Kläppkärr day 5/6. Beautiful corded ware culture potsherds!

Another besutiful summers day at the excavation in Espoo. We continued excavating trial excavation area two and made the first of several test pits in order to determine the full extent of this extraordinary corded ware culture and early comb ceramic dwelling site. Some wonderful finds again today :)

Nice ornate rimsherd from a corded ware culture pot.

Thanks to the wonderful sunny weather, the dig advanced very fast and we reached the bottom of trial excavation area one in the afternoon.

Today we started digging test pits at a distance from the trial excavation areas. Test pit one was dug some 20 m. to the north and produced finds of corded ware pottery as well as large quartz flakes!

Excavating test pit one.

Tomorrow is the last day of this years excavation but we will definitely continue next year!
