Dr Svea Mahlstedt in an interview about her search for the "hot shit of the Mesolithic Age”

That she can convey her fascination for Stone Age archeology with flippant formulations, Dr Svea Mahlstedt has already proven in her Science Slam contributions in Oldenburg and Wilhelmshaven. Now she is a guest in the current episode of the podcast "Hirn gehört: Oldenburger Wissensschnack".
There she reports in an interview with the moderators Dr. Bianca Brüggen and Jens-Steffen Scherer about her archaeological work at the Lower Saxony Institute for Historical Coastal Research (NIhK)and shows that doing archeology in northern Germany has little in common with what many people imagine.
Svea Mahlstedt does not struggle through exotic forests like Lara Croft or Indiana Jones, but thinks about white-tailed eagles and protected areas before tracking down owners of meadows and fields and finally searches for millennia-old traces of settlements in the cold mud and bog.
In the interview, it becomes clear what she means by the "hot shit of the Mesolithic Age" - prehistoric vessels or plattforms made of birch bark.
Svea Mahlstedt, archaeologist at the NIhK in Wilhelmshaven, brings along a lot of optimism, perseverance and energy for this. If you want to learn more about her birch bark finds, about unusual fails and about an exciting technical term, listen to the current episode of Wissensschnack.
