Back to Greece again so quickly! First was a quick stop to work at a new site for me - Aigeira, which is a project of the Austrian Archaeological Institute in Athens. This site is in the Greek region of Achaia and we lived in Akrata, which is a beautiful town directly n the coast of the Gulf of Corinth. there was a beautiful windy uphill drive each morning to the site and the lab. I was only here for a short time but I definitely hope to return. Luckily, another great illustrator, Christina Kolb, was also there to help with the huge amount of drawings to be done!
And next I was very happily able to return to Pylos again. This time to catch up on drawings needed of excavated material in the museum. It got to be a little rainy and slightly cool - but living in the town of Pylos was beautiful as always. And drawing the pottery from the site was interesting as usual! Being here in October/November was also a great time to see what non-smmer life is like in Greece. We were able to attend festivities for Navarino Day, a celebration of Greek independence, that included touring both a Russian and Greek war ship!
And that was all for this trip!
