DCIM100GOPROFriday is our day off at Polis. We used the morning to talk about our plans for the rest of our time here at Polis – Bill and I leave Polis on the 26th to head back to Larnaka before I fly out on the 27th. This means that we have 10 more possible work days here, and we want to make sure that we do not leave Polis and realize later that we forgot to look at some critical unit’s pottery. In the afternoon, I went out to the basilica with my IUP colleague, Bev Chiarulli, to conduct a small GPR scan of the are next to the excavated area of the EF2 basilica. Bev is on the island doing some GPR and GIS mapping for Alan Simmons’ archaeological project at Ais Yiorkis. IUP actually has 2 faculty on Cyprus doing research this summer. Anyway, she is processing the data at the moment, so nothing to show yet. After finishing up the GPR scan, we went to one of our favorite restaurants up the coast to watch the sunset – it always has a fabulous sunset, plus the pizza there is always good too.
