First WW2 conflict archaeology fieldwork in 2020 tomorrow

Finally, tomorrow, something happening on the "Hanko 1941" front. Me and Mr Lasse Nyman will kick off the first leg of the painstaking work of documenting the area of the former WW2 Prisoner of War Camp number 7, (Sova 7) located in Raseborg S. Finland.

The Soviet prisoners of war marched to the prisoner of war camp along the Lohjantie road. Photo work Jan Fast/SA-kuva. After this we will visit Kek 18 or the site of the former evacuation center (morgue) of fallen Scandinavian and Finnish soldiers on the Hanko Front. The building which so much tragic history was demolished in the 1990´s but otherwise the area is very much as it was in 1941.

Kek 18. The body of the fallen Danish volunteer Jörgen Hagemann is about to be lifted into the awaiting car. Now and then photo Jan Fast/SA-kuva.
