Around Saturday 12 October 2013, we sadly farewell some Zagora team members. The whole team has worked incredibly hard in often challenging conditions, and has done so with great spirit, humour and gusto. We are sure those who are leaving us are a hard act to match – yet we expect those who are arriving this weekend to do so, and look forward to welcoming them. The photo below shows those team members who were on site on Thursday 10 October 2013.
I have numbered and named them in the following photograph so you can tell who everyone is.
On the Zagora 2013 archaeological season, people generally work the whole season of six weeks, or the first three weeks or the second three weeks. There are exceptions where specialists come for different periods at different times, depending on the work required and their availability – for example, Dr Adela Sobotkova and Petra Janouchova, our satellite imaging specialists, and Dr Evi Margaritis, our seeds specialist who set up the wet sieving apparatus.
Not present the day the group photo was taken were Dr Stavros Paspalas, one of the directors of the project and Beatrice McLoughlin who, with Stavros, manages the finds processing undertaken at the Andros Archaeological Museum in Chora. Also not in the photo for various reasons are Sue Jorgenson, Dr Nicola Harrington, Richard Anderson, Lea Alexopoulos, Marco Schugk, Lydia Beaumont-Cankaya, Anastasia Miller-Csapo or Matthew Miller-Csapo. Where they are already pictured elsewhere in the blog, I have linked their names to other posts which include photographs of them.
Here are photos of those who have not yet been pictured on the blog:
And here is a shot of some of the team members having lunch (sitting against the dig hut in the narrow band of shade) on Wednesday 25 September 2013.
*I didn’t have a tripod this day, so both Lesley Beaumont and I took photos of the team. I p myself into this photo from the photo that Lesley took.
