I did my first excavation in Wendland in June 1986. I slept in a tent on the meadow of a farmer near the excavation place. I had to get up very early, no hot shower. And most of the times I was the first at the excavation site. And most of the mornings at half past seven I thought: "What the hell am I doing here?!"
This photo always reminds me of my feeling almost every morning, that the Apache Indians must ride on their horses around the corner right now!
That is me digging in the ground to find the remains of people, who have camped in Wendland tenthousand years ago.
Well, of course we did not expect to find bones of the people, as they had long ago dissolved. But they left their artefacts, their tools and weapons made of stone.
And that is, what the strange triangular things were for: sieves. We sieved all the earth, that we excatvated!!!!!!
We found thousands of these flintstone-tools! And some of them you can see at the Landesmuseum in Hannover!
You are interested in my nightlife in those three weeks? Well, that was most of it: singing folksongs, when the sun was going down.
Most of the days - but then we also had a night, when we played the newest hits on a carradio until early morning. I think we scared the cows away (maybe they didnot give any milk in the morning after) and made some farmers angry.But we had a fantastic night!
