[FIN]
Tuusulan Nuppulinnassa, Tervahaudanmäellä, sijaitsee Tervahauta-niminen paikka. Nimen yhteydestä tervanpolttoon ei ole varmaa tietoa, mutta myös muutamat muut vanhat paikannimet Tuusulan alueella viittaavat tervanpolttoon. Tiedetään, ettei tervanpoltto ole ollut Tuusulassa kovin yleistä vaan lähinnä tuloja saatiin kaskeamisesta. Tervahauta-nimi saattaa kuitenkin juontaa juurensa tervanpolttoon alueella, sillä huolimatta kaskeamisen yleisyydestä, tervaa poltettiin usein kotitarpeiksi.

Auto kannattaa jättää parkkiin tien varteen. Pientä metsätietä pitkin voi kävellä Tervahaudan lähelle. Kätköalue ei sovi aivan pienille lapsille mutta kouluikäiset pääsevät perille asti hyvin. Runsaslumisina talvina kätkö saattaa hautautua lumen alle.

[ENG]
In Tervahaudanmäet, which is a region in Nuppulinna, Tuusula, is a place called Tervahauta ("Tar-burning-pit"). There is no confident knowledge about making tar in the area but also some other old place names in the area of Tuusula refer to making tar. It is known that making tar was not common in Tuusula because the earnings were based mainly on swidden agriculture. The word Tervahauta might anyhow stem from making tar because despite the ubiquity of swidden agriculture, tar was often made for domestic use.

The vehicle can be left by the road. There is a path in the woods that will lead you close to Tervahauta. The cache area is not suitable for very small children but children of school-age will manage well. If there is plenty of snow, the cache might be buried in snow.
