Today we started off as usual at 10 o´clock. After a short briefing about yesterdays finds and the general progress of the dig it was again time to get our hands dirty.
The assumption that the finds in the bottom part of the find layer might surprise us became true when a large, beautiful and complete flint artefact was found shortly before the day ended. The item resembles a so called curved slate knife which can be associated with the Typical Comb Ceramic Culture. Despite my over 30 years as a field archaeologista and conducting more than 200 excavations I have never encountered one that was made of flint before!
