Jokiniemi 2015 day 3/22

This day was a rainy one but thanks to the hard working crew it turned out very good! Lot´s of great finds too (well preserved neolithic pottery, another intriguing crystal an unfinished flint arrowhead and a beautiful fragment of  a neolithic slate ring fragment (according to grave finds these were probably used as dress ornaments).

Digging in the rain (our tent covers an area of only 10 x 3 meters so space became a problem at the end of the day :)

Original 1980´s Finnish design "Rukka" raincoat!

Below two of todays beautiful finds, an unfinished neolithic flint arrowhead and a fragment of a neolithic polished slate ring!!
