Yesterday, on the 5th anniversary of her passing, we christened our drone Patty2, in memory of our beloved staff photographer, Patty O’Connor-Seger, who gave us during Phases I and II so many beautiful pictures and memories.
This morning we devoted some time to group pictures. We took pictures of the whole group, of the staff, of student groups by school. Here is a selection:
The Emory University Bunch
The William Jessup University Group
As we look from space
For those who are concerned that we did not earned our breakfast (and lunch), here is proof that we continued to work removing balks between the squares uncovering many interesting things, such as remains of substantial floors from the Roman period. And these were established directly on top of the late eighth century destruction we attribute to Sennacherib. More on the latter later.
