Just as the summer started with a wedding on an island involving archaeologists (that of Stringy and Deanna Aubert on Crete) it is more than appropriate to close the summer with another such wedding. This took place on August 31st on Kouphonisi, where Evi Margaritis and Michael Boyd were united in wedlock before an enthusiastic group of family members from Greece and Scotland, as well as - guess what? - a large contingent of archaeologists. To complete the archaeological component (besides moi and my wife) our own Jonathan was there too (as his facebook page followers already know very well!) plus Stringy and Deanna. Evi and Michael met on Kouphonisi on one of Professor Colin Renfrew’s (University of Cambridge) and Greek colleagues’ field projects investigating the enigmatic Early Cycladic I-II remains on the island of Keros and the islet of Daskaleio to the south.

Two weddings, three excavations and a survey; the summer has ended!
