It's a life's time experience journey through an archaeological excavation, four whole summers from the middle of July to the middle of August following the same path every day with the same schedule at the same time of departure – arrival and vice versa. The field of Archaeology seen and felt through the perspective of Antiklia and Alexandros. Descriptions of moments, observations of the natural habitat, personal thoughts, notes sketches and drawings are depicted in this introductory note. It's a kind of wanderlust in time, in space and the area.
I first arrived in Zerelia in the middle of July 2011. It was still night when we left the meeting point with the yellow university bus. The sun was rising behind Mount Pelion. We got to a landscape with squared fields coloured in shades of gold, yellow and brick brown. The shepherd with his flock and dogs could be heard from the opposite hill. As they were walking down the slope they appeared as brown, beige, light yellow dots. The animal's bells ringing in harmony with the call of the hawks flying overhead in circles over big lake Zereli in search of prey. We climbed the magoula leaving behind us the two lakes. It is a mound with dry grass and piles of stones.
