I am very envious of you staying 9 weeks on Crete - I spent 2 weeks there in Oct (my second visit) and went over to Zakros & walked the valley of the dead. I work in a museum in England & would myself like to work on a dig on Crete. I wondered where your dig is & how you arranged to be part of it? Anyway good luck with it
Actually, I'll be near Lamia on the mainland for the dig, I am going to be on Crete for only 10 days. I got on the dig through my university as part of a field school. The dig website is here.
