If we count the first day, this is actually day 21 of a tiring, wet but successful field school. Today was a day of cleaning and packing, with a small detachment of Kiel University divers going out to the wreck one last time to cover the trench with sandbags and ballast stones.
I’d like to say thanks, first of all to all participants from Esbjerg and Kiel for the great work and energy.
Thanks obviously also go to Dr Martin Segschneider of the -Archäologisches Landesamt- for facilitating and supporting this year’s field school.
We’d also like to thank our maritime support team, consisting of the Nordwind crew, the Bussard with skippers Jörn and Karl and Jan and Günther, skippers of the SKS Herzallerliebst.
Many thanks to Amandine for advising on and organizing the finds handling and storage during the excavation.
Last but certainly not least, we would like to thank our Schilksee facility managers and the Sailing Centre of the University of Kiel for putting us up and putting up with us. I think letting us move into the gym after our campsite flooded really saved the day!!! THANKS!
Watch this spot for further news, information on the processing and ultimately the field school report!
