2016 Conflict Archaeology Field School in Hanko S. Finland now confirmed

I have today received final confirmation that "Hangö Sommaruniversitet" will finance a three week long archaeological excavation of "Deutsches Lager Hanko" from June 27th to July 16th 2016. The excavation will be organized in the form of a conflict archaeology field school open to anyone interested in WW2 history and conflict archaeology.
