Explore the stone-age origins of Helsinki this summer

It´s official! Registration for the upcoming archaeology field course  starts on Thursday the 31st of March at 10.00 a.m. (Finnish time). No previous experience of archaeology or archaeological excavations is required and children under 14 years of age can participate in the company of an adult.

Archaeology for all ages.

The excavation site dates to the neolithic stone-age (3700-3300 BC) and has proven very rich in finds. Typical finds include ornate pottery, flint arrowheads and amber pendants among many other things left behind by the stone-age inhbitants.

Well worn flint dagger and a neolithic potsherd found during excavations of the site in 2018.
