Photo Friday on the Western Argolid Regional Project

This week, I mapped some, drew some, and barely survived the rest of the time. I’m pretty sure that this is the last week of the season on the Western Argolid Regional Project.

I got some good photos of members of our field teams out working. Grace Erny is super photogenic in the field (although she’d deny it). She’s always doing something archaeological:

One of the project directors, Dimitri Nakassis, is very proud of being a University of Michigan graduate and also very happy to finally be getting into the field on a consistent basis:

Phil Cook and I spent a long day drawing a an early modern fortified site:

I saw the usual array of scenic and curious things in the field.

Prof. Nakssis makes lots of phone calls from the field because he’s the boss:

This is what a day that will approach 40 degrees looks like at the start:

On a hot day of mapping, we were caught off guard by a ZETOR in the wild (it’s a Czech tractor company):

One last picture… the low clouds snagging on the peak and the dramatic difference of scale and focus gives the picture a tilt-shift look:
