Day 5/8. Excavating the Kläppkärr (Early Comb Ceramic and Corded Ware Culture) stone-age dwelling site in Espoo S. Finland

Today was a very busy day indeed with fantastic finds of Early Comb Ceramic pottery and a visit by the media. Radio reporter Anna Louhisto together with the very experienced Mathias Gustafson pulled of a very nice live interview for the morning show @ Radio Vega huvudstadsregionen.

Focused participants during the community archaeology field school earlier today.

Several concentrations of potsherds were excavated during the day one of which contained large fragments of the rounded bottom part of a large Comb Ceramic vessel. Fragments of the botto part of Early Comb Ceramic Vessels of style Ka I:2 are extremely rare so we were of course very exited about the find.

Tomorrow we will start excavating layer three of excavation area two. More pottery is anticpated and  hopefully also some nice surprises :). The weather report promises sun and temperatures around 31 degrees Celsius so we can´t complain <3 

Birches and Lupines (Lupinus polyphyllus) grow on the stone-age seashore 6 000 years after it was inhabited.
