Digging around in Helsinki’s past – Urban archaeology in cartoons
In 1995, the renovation of the Government Palace uncovered the nearly 200-year-old market square, beneath the cobble-stones of today’s Senate Square. Beneath the city centre lies hidden an unknown Helsinki, a small town from the period of the Swedish reign, introduced in this cartoon book. Join our City Museum archaeologist on a tour through Helsinki’s 17th and 18th Century houses, yards and gardens.
