Informal learning and pedagogic Modern Conflict Archaeology with students from local schools in Hanko.

Today we finally got much needed help when twenty students from nearby Hankoniemen lukio and Hangö gymnasium joined us. The students will dig into the Second World War for the next two days. 

Students from Hankonimene lukio sieving for Second World War finds today.

What a joy to it was see the energy and good mood of the students during todays work. The participation of the schoolchuldren was made possible with funding from Mr. Kari Karvinen, Hangö Sommaruni and AKTIA stiftelsen in Hanko. Because of their energy we were able to get a lot done today and will probably reach the floor level of the command post tomorrow afternoon. Not so many WW2 finds but as I told the students "the structure itself is the find".

The excavation progressed with great speed today thanks to the work done by the students.

Next year we will continue  to offer schoolchildren the opportunity to participate in the excavations of Kabanovs underground command post with funding from Thure Galléns stiftelse.
