Suuri Seikkailu ja elämä nyt!

Hyppäsimme käsi kädessä! Olemme saanet aitoutta, pysähtymistä, heräämistä, hetkeä. Nyt elämme hirsiä ja pellavarivettä, banaanilaatikoita, teinejä ja taaperoa, koiranneniä ja lampaita, kaartelevia merikotkia ja huikaisevaa halua merelle.




The Pit!

When we read that they were trying to find all the pre-historic sites of our island we came to think of the Pit, Kuoppa.
For ages people in our farm Pellas had known about it and wondered what it is - in the middle of our home forest, high on the east side of the hill, about 20-25 metres above sea level.
So we contacted Marja, the archaeologist who joined us on a forest walk to the site. 

She estimated it to be from the Bronze age, then at least 2500 years old, and probably a storage pit of seal hunters, the only one found at this area.
It is made of round stones softened by the waves of the sea after the Ice Age and on the cool side of the hill, near a steep place to pull up the boat.

In the old times people sought not only shelter but also advice from special places like high tops like this.
We thought we were the first to inform the bureau of Museum but my husbands's grand-father had done it already in 1971!
Here's Uno, the grand-father by the pit! It was then estimated to be ruins of a temporary fishermen's shelter. Who knows what the next generation will think!
