Last in line

Tomorrow is the last day at Skepplanda 32 and most of the work will concern dismantling the excavation site, packing and finishing up.

Today we finished one of the larger hearths at Skepplanda 32, it was ca 4 m in diameter and ca 0,5 m deep.

We didn’t find many artefacts in it but I found this nice cylindrical flint core, where the hearth met the sand.

Another nice find today was our second arrow head made of quartz.

As I said tomorrow is the last day and then it’s up to Stockholm for a week worth of vacation.
