Nice first field day, checking out the stone age in Sipoo

in absoulutely wonderful spring weather :) below are some photos of sites I visited today. I left the stone age finds on the sites but marked the findspots on a map for future reference.
Of all the sites I visited today the Solbacka site seemed to hold most potential. The dwelling site would be perfect for trial excavations with amateurs and/or schoolchildren. I discussed this with the landowner who was very supportive so maybe... someday sometime...

Sandbacka 2 mesolithic stone age dwelling site south of Talma skicenter (no finds during inspection)
