Photographs from the German Excavation

29 Aug

Well I’ve just got back to the UK today after 6 wonderful weeks on placement at Landesamt fur denkmalspfliege und Archaeologie Sachsen Anhalt, which was based in the Sachsen Anhalt state capital of Magdeburg, in Germany.  I’ll do a full write up later in the week, but for now enjoy some photos!

The Domersleben Site

Max Plank Institute- sadly not the evolutionary anthropology centre!
