Geocache Description:

Stranden vid restaurang Emma, Harbour by restaurant Emma, Emma-ravintolan ranta

SWE:
Medelbys norra strand med brygga och pontonrestaurangen Emma. Restaurangen är byggd på en ponton som ursprungligen tillverkades av amerikanare för landstigningen vid Normandie 1944. Flera av dessa pontoner kom senare till Finland och användes bl.a. för att bygga pontonbron mellan Hirvensalo och Satava utanför Åbo. När bron där byttes, fick de enskilda pontonerna olika användningssyften, bl.a. bottnet för denna restaurang.
Öster om denna strand finns Trollberget, där det finns en bronsåldersgrav med en diameter på 12m. Graven är från ca 1200 år f.Kr och där hittade benskärvorna härstammar från flera 10-44 år gamla människor.

ENG:
The northern shore of village Medelby with a pier and the pontoon-restaurant Emma. The restaurant is built on a pontoon that was originally constructed by the Americans for the landing on Normandy 1944 (D-day). Several of these pontoons came later to Finland and were used for building the pontoon bridge between Hirvensalo and Satava outside the city of Turku. When the bridge was changed, the individual pontoons were used for various purposes, amongst others as the base for this restaurant.
East of this shore you find the hill “Trollberget”, which contains a bronze-age grave with a diameter of 12 metres. The grave is from 1200 B.C. and contained the remains of several persons aged 10 to 44.

FIN:
Medelbyn kylän pohjoisranta, jossa on laituri ja ponttooniravintola Emma. Ravintola on rakennettu alun perin Normandian maihinnousua varten 1944 valmistetulle ponttoonille. Useita näitä ponttooneita tuli sodan jälkeen Suomeen ja niistä rakennettiin mm Turun ulkopuolella sijaitsevien Hirvensalon ja Satavan saarten välinen ponttoonisilta. Kun tämä silta vaihdettiin, yksittäisiä ponttooneja käytettiin eri tarkoituksiin, kuten tämän ravintolan perustaksi.
Rannan itäpuolella sijaitsee Trollbergetin kallio, josta löytyy 12 metriä halkaisijaltaan oleva pronssiajan hauta. Haudan arvioidaan olevan aikakaudelta 1200 e.Kr ja siitä on löydetty usean 10-44 vuotiaan ihmisen jäännökset.
