Excavating General Sergei Kabanovs underground command post. Day 7/10.

Today we excavated with students from Kallion lukio and Helsingin kuvataidelukio. With the help of these beautiful youngsters we were finally able to reach the floor level of the operational room and the bathroom of the command post.

A few untouched "architectural" details appeared today. Photo Katja Hippeläinen. 

Excavating the very fragile floor level was quite demanding and called for a great deal of flexibility from the participants. The rain and strong winds made excavation quite difficult too and it was easy to feel that summer has turned to autumn.

Todays excavation called for gymnastics and endurance in the windy and rainy weather ;)

The weather report says it will rain all day long tomorrow so we will spend the day indoors and visit the fantastic Hanko Front Museum and attend lectures about the search of fallen and missing soldiers (Finding the Fallen of the Hanko Front) and the excavations of the German Transition Camp in Hanko (Deutsches Lager Hanko 1942-1944). A guided tour at the museum is also on the programme.

A few final touches to this years excavation area before documentation on Thursday.
