Here are some photos of the team who worked on Trench 6 under Paul Donnelly’s supervision for the second three weeks of the 2014 excavations. The post about the first 2014 Zagora team working on trench 6 is here.

The 2013 site plan showing trench locations in 2013 is at the bottom of this post. For more information about this part of Zagora, see last year’s post on Excavation Area 5.

  1. Thank you Irma for such lovely documentation, had a literal BLAST in Trench 6, sorry about the flying drawing board. Thank you to Paul and his team for making me so welcome.

    • Dear Annie – it was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you. And perhaps our paths will cross again…. All the best, Irma xx

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Anne! You were a wonderful asset in Tr 6 – we were very lucky to have your drawing skills and good humour. I’m looking forward to seeing our house’s (many) lovely wall elevation drawings and floor plans published!
