Results of the excavation 7/10-2017
On Saturday the 7th of October, we excavated a bunker in Hanstholm in cooperation with the Occupation History Society (BSTH). The bunker is located on Helshagevej in Hanstholm and accommodated a 10.5 cm cannon and its crew. The bunker is of the type Regelbau Fl 243.
We chose to excavate this bunker because we have not previously excavated a bunker of this type and the types drawings we know of differ a lot.
The excavation of the crew bunker yielded no spectacular results, but we learned a lot of new things.
