2013 Zagora team members (weeks 4-6)

As you probably know, we have a six-week excavation season this year for the Zagora Archaeological Project. Many of us stay for the entire season but some stay for shorter periods. Most of the archaeological volunteers who aren’t here for the whole six weeks are here either for the first three weeks, or the second three weeks. I posted a photograph earlier about the team of the first three weeks. We’re now in the fifth week of the season, and following is a photograph of our current Zagora team. Beneath this photo is another one with the team members numbered and named so you know who they all are.

Now the pressure is building with the increasing awareness that the end of the season is approaching. We have only about a week left before we begin the task of backfilling the trenches before the end of the season. Everyone feels it and is doing their best to make the most of the available time left working on site.

The thing in common across all team members in every week of the season is working cooperatively in a common cause, helping one another, and finding lightness and cheer in all circumstances – even when being blown off our feet by the wind or working in rain.
