Our 2017 season is well underway. Today we began week five of our six week season. The team is made up of about 30 colleagues and students from Canada, the US, Greece, Italy, and Poland. In the early weeks we had quite a bit of rain but now the rain is gone and the heat has arrived: 35 (95 F) today! Everyone is working extremely hard and the work is going well. We are extremely grateful to our colleagues at the Thebes Museum and the Ephoreia of the Antiquities of Boeotia who help us so much in our work.
What follows will be student blogs which are part of our field school course through the University of Victoria. Students are asked to write in an interesting way some aspect of the excavation, to provide the reader with a sense of what it is like to be on an excavation in Greece.
