Day 2/8. Excavating the Kläppkärr (Early Comb Ceramic and Corded Ware Culture) stone-age dwelling site in Espoo S. Finland

The warm and sunny weather continues so we yesterday we decided to start this day one hour earlier than usual to take advantage of the slightly cooler morning air. This proved to be a good decision as we managed to open up and remove the topsoil of the entire excavation area in a couple of hours.

Excavating layer one in style.

While excavating the surface layer (layer 1)many small finds like potsherds, fragments of polished stone tools, as well as quartz and slate flakes kept turning up. This indicates that almost the entire area will be quite rich in finds in layers 2-4.

Tomorrow and with the help of our experienced excavation crew of 20 +3 we will probably reach level 2 over the entire excavation area. Many more exiting and happy moments lie ahead during the next 6 days <3

Children under 14 years of age are akllowed to participate when accompanied by an adult.
