Abstract
The rich and colorful human history of Eura has been documented based on archaeological findings. The oldest findings from Satakunta are associated with the Suomusjarvi culture, which may have had possible cultural and trading connections to East Karelia. The findings also show that there has been two different types of ceramics in the same place and time period indicating a chance that there have been two populations from different cultures at the same time. Numerous archaeological findings belonging to the later Kiukainen culture show the cultural dependencies with other archaeological finding sites in Finland. In this chapter, four archaeological examples that belong to either Suomusjarvi or Kiukainen culture are presented. Also a brief history of Scandinavian archaeology is presented and the roots of Finnish archaeology are discussed in this chapter.
