This year we will continue the research of the Ruskiasuo stone-age dwelling site. The aim is to gain as much data as possible about this intriguing site to help preserve it for future generations. Last year the finds from the site showed that it had been inhabited both during the early comb ceramic and the corded ware culture period.
