Day 4/10 of excavating of general Sergei Kabanovs underground command post in Hanko S. Finland.

Today we finally found the southern wall of the command post. This means that we can finally get an idea of its size. According to our research the command post was approximately 8 meters wide and maybe about 15-20 meters in length based on the GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) results.

The light was excellent today enabling our cartographer Aleksi Rikkinen to capture some great drone photos of our ongoing research. More drone photos will bet taken next week when we clear more of the wall structures.

We are not excavating the floor level of the command post until next year when a one month long excavation is scheduled for June and July.  The information of the layout and extent of the remains is crucial for us to be able to plan the 2023 excavation season.

Todays finds still included fragments green painted wooden doorposts and several other items that relate to different structures of the command post. I will post pictures of the finds in a separate blog post after the excavation is over.
