Sorry for the break

Wall_2 Sorry for my sudden silence. The combination of the Easter weekend, college basketball, and falling behind in grading resulted in my forgetting to write my blog for a couple of days. So to catch up, let’s see..

On the PKAP front, the 7th short from our work last summer (Wall on Kokkinokremos) is now available for viewing on-line. In this episode, our two Bronze Age experts (Dimitri Nakassis and Michael Brown) are working on the site of Pyla-Kokkinokremos, an area we started working on last summer.

I also decided that if I am to properly use the Trimble R8 this summer that I need to practice with it on a regular basis to ensure that I don’t forget something important. So today, after class I got the R8 out and practiced setting it up. This time, I also wrote down each step of the process (actually my dad did that)and also took screen shots of the software. My goal is to create a manual for operating the R8 that will help other PKAP project members learn to use it.

On Friday, I started to panic about the upcoming PKAP season, in particular the fact that I am not sure if we have all the equipment we need, how are we going to get it to Cyprus, etc. Fortunately I was able to talk to Bill and David and feel better about the situation. But we will see of that changes over the next week since I want to have everything we need for the summer ordered by the end of the 1st week of April.
