Voima-Kuusela row house

Around two kilometers from the Kierikki Centre, next to the road, there is a 64-metre-long depression of an ancient row house. Several depressions connected to each other by wide doorways are visible even today. In 1998, a small part of the house was excavated and new data concerning "Kierikki" type row-houses, for example the remains of walls, were found. Several amber buttons were also found, which indicates a high standard of living.

The remains can be reached and viewed easily, as there is a parking lot by the side of the road and a short, sturdy wooden path leading to the site. We recommend a visit to the remains of the original row house after visiting the centre and the Stone Age Village
