There really is no such thing as a typical day here at ancient Eleon. We are very well aware of the day of the week and the week number: we dig for six weeks so every day is Very Important. Today was week two, Wednesday. Things are going well.
Personally, I had to go to Athens to renew my passport. This took about three hours. Bryan was on site working and directing so things were in good hands. Neither of us likes to be away from site for long.
Slowly we are making progress. In the Northwest there were interesting finds related to craft production in the very latest Mycenaean levels. In the Southeast there were unexpected discoveries related to finds inside the BSS. And inside, gradual uncovery happened over a large block: we’ll see tomorrow.
And, most excitingly, we got a new microscope today for the lab. Our conservators will make great use of this new equipment. Vicky Karas is shown below assembling it.
