My colleague Claudia Melisch, who excavates at Petriplatz, made me aware of a petition campaign to encourage the Berlin senate to fund archaeological excavation and analysis at the site. The subtitle of the project - Wo Berlin Begann - means Where Berlin Began.

I'll be involved with the Petriplatz Project doing the strontium isotope analysis, provided Claudia is successful in her bid for funding. So we need your help! Please take a minute to click through to the website and add your name to the growing list of supporters. There's a version in English, but you'll have to click back under Ihre Meinung to sign the petition.
