Saturdays on the dig are very nice. The site is generally quiet, free from visitors (whom we love, of course), and peaceful. We work from 6:30 to 12, which is, in our minds, a half day. We’ll have our usual healthy breakfast snack but lunch and dinner is on everyone’s own. Sunday is a full holiday.
Yesterday our friend Sotiris visited the site, with his large backhoe. He has helped us remove very large collections of rocks in the past and this has proved very helpful as we try to present a coherent understanding of the site. Yesterday was no different. We are very grateful for his interest and help. With some areas prepared, we are ready to start digging full-on.
