After several successful days our luck broke at 8.30am today - the heavens opened the the rain poured - at sometimes sideways. On site archaeologists hid under shelter and trees, back at the dighouse a panicked attempt to move finds laid out on the table was underway while roofs, balcony doors and windows of the dighouse were checked for leaks and rain coming in. Eventually the site was declared closed and the focus of the work has shifted to indoor jobs while the weather eased.
Now the rain has cleared we have managed to get some study of pottery completed, while most of the students have gone to visit the Paphos District Archaeological Museum to investigate material comparative with what we are finding on the theatre site.
Each season our team including the directors, students, architects, volunteers, ceramicists and other finds specialists will blog about the day to day sweat and adventures that come with life on an archaeological dig.
