Elliott’s Final Week

This week was our last week of excavation for the season. The majority of our time during the season was spent in the field carefully digging and keeping our eyes peeled for pottery, but this week we actually got to examine and learn about some of the pieces we’ve been finding. One of our team members is a ceramics specialist, and she was able to tell us a great deal about where the pottery from our site comes from. We also got the chance to practice our drawing skills by sketching the profile of a pottery sherd. This week we visited a local vineyard and sampled some delicious food and wine, made only with ingredients found on the island. Watching the sunset from the patio of the estate was the perfect way to say goodbye to the island.
