2015 Field Season Day 37

I'd like to take a moment to highlight the work of someone who contributes to the blog regularly -- Melissa, the dig photographer. Her job is a crazy busy one, especially at this point in the season. Not only does Melissa take shots in the field but also she photographs objects out of the field. Her photographs will appear in the Islamic and Hellenistic volumes, currently under way, as well as many more.

Melissa also takes a lot of our "people shots," and it's thanks to her that we have some great photos from Grid 51 today.
