Here is another student from U Ottawa with a find from the wet sieve. We put all of the dirt we take out of the ground through mesh screens in order not to miss any important artifacts. We send 20% of the dirt to the Beach where the valiant wet sievers put the dirt in a contraption and let the sea water sieve the material. The remaining material is then dried and sorted. During this process we often find small obsidian fragments, small marble figurine feet and pieces of pottery.
Here I am in the Kavos area in Trench F2.
We are in the field on Monday and Tuesday mainly drawing plans of what we found. The majority of the students and archaeologists leave on Wednesday. I'll be here for a few more days doing some post-excavation wrap-up and then off to Naxos and Athens for post-doc research.
