This day started off with a radio interview for Ålands Radio. Please take a moment to listen to some basic facts about the site and the excavation by clicking on the link below. The interview is in Swedish.
The excavation itself is progressing according to plan although we still have some catching up to do because of the rainy weather last Tuesday. With the help of our multitalented excavation team we managed to finish excavation layer two today which means we are quite now close to the level of the trial excavation trenches where we paused the dig in 2021. After reaching level 3 we will finally uncover the entire excavation area.Level 2 of the excavation area with the trial trenches from 2021 still left covered with a layer of sand.
The beautiful finds continue to amaze us. Today two we uncovered some very beautiful neolithic potsherds a few of which might belong to the youngest phase of the Pitted Ware Culture (3200 BC to 2300 BC) or even later.
