Heracles : Report from Tiryns, Week 1

HERACLES, our archaeoseismological (big word, eight syllables, wooh) project in the ruins of the Mycanean Palace in Tiryns started last week. I won't be joining the crew for another week, but I do have pictures!

The gravimeter that has my name on it. He's waiting patiently for my arrival.



Not a field of flowers, but a field of seismometers. With their own sun.



Every dig needs its own dog. He has a Greek name (Dida) and a German one (Wurst).



Archeologists and Geoscientists of all sizes and nationalities working together. Yes, it can be done.
