I read an article in one of the papers yesterday that Berlin's Teufelsberg is to be excavated by archaeologists, but I can't seem to find it online.
Here's a Wikipedia link though
The Devil's Mountain rubble mounds. I'm affraid the building is heavily vandalized by now. I'll try to find details, but I remember reading that it would cost a fortune to fix it.

I absolutely love old installations from the Nuke depot at Pease SAC base to the old Roman forts and medieval hill towns of Italy. It is also fun performing military archaelogical digs at estate and yard sales
Great stuff- got any pics?
Hey, that's good to know! Were you ever in the Troywood complex in Fife, or the Cultybraggan bunker in Perthshire?
Come to think of it, the guys at Subterranea Britannica would be very glad to hear from you.
An interesting project is completed-

Hey these links are great. I will definetely keep checking. Thanks for adding the links Gordon and Erich.
