Ruskiasuo 2019, the final day.

The end of another great stone-age excavation in 2019. Beautiful large potsherds from the early comb ceramic culture (Ka I:1 ca 5000 BC) until the very last minutes of the dig.

Today we carefully checked that we had dug all trial areas and test pits to the very end until no finds or  cultural layer remained. After this we documented the area thoroughly and at last filled in the excavation areas.

We found nice Ka I:1 pottery fragments until the very last minutes of the dig and of course also took pictures of the finds to show frriends and family :).

At the end of the day we visited a few interesting stone-age site sites in the vicinity. Me and archaeologist Janne Soisalo documented the newly found early comb ceramic stone-age site near Ruskiasuo.

And finally it was time to say goodbye to Ruskiasuo <3

We hope to be back in May next year with a longer excavation. Until then! Thank you very much to all you wonderful people who participated <3

Best Jan and Janne
