Even though we had wild weather in the few days leading up to our public tour, we were very pleased that this didn’t deter some 50 members of the local Andros community who made the trek down to Zagora yesterday, Saturday 25 October 2014, to learn more about our work there.
The three Zagora Archaeological Project co-directors each led a group to excavation areas around the site and explained what we are learning about this c. 900-700 BCE settlement through the archaeological work being done there. Associate Professor Lesley Beaumont and Dr Stavros Paspalas led their groups in Greek, and Professor Meg Miller led her group in English.
Local community interest was clearly evident, and appreciated, by the Zagora archaeologists.
There will be a public presentation, in Greek, about the Zagora Archaeological Project at the Municipal Theatre, Chora, on Thursday 6 November at 7pm. All are welcome.
