Professore Maurizio Cattani treated us to a fabulous tour of the Universita di Bologna dig at the Mursia area of the island.

Taking care of business

We had an exhausting, but good, day today. Clive, Lucy, Luke, Patrick, and Brandon focused on some of our lasts major tasks inside the structure.

Andy and I hiked over the ridge to assess the extensive wall system (with different construction techniques), stone path to form a plan with our research questions for the future. There is so much archaeology here.

Pantelleria Town Hall Meeting

We just had a two day visit from Sebastiano Tusa, which included our public presentations in the Pantelleria Town Hall today. There was a good attendance with positive feedback from residents. It sounds like we will have lots of local visitors this week.

The second sondage, this time in Room 4, was also begun.
