the 70th anniversary of the formal establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and Greece in 1942. A timely grant from the Eldorado Gold Corporation (Vancouver) provided the requisite funding to support the work.
Frederick E. Winter B/W Negative Collection. For each project there is a selection of images to highlight the work, the archaeological finds and the results of the fieldwork and related research. The individuals involved in the project, the associated and supporting institutions as well as the complete list of publications are given too. Every major field is searchable.

November will be a busy month for us and our followers. Our first lecture will be on Wednesday, November 13th at 7:30 pm when Prof. Margriet Haagsma (University of Alberta) will give a lecture entitled, “Cities and Sustainability: Reflections on Household Management in New Halos, Thessaly”. As Margriet is beloved in two countries, Canada and the Netherlands, the lecture is jointly sponsored by CIG and the Netherlands Institute at Athens. For this special occasion the lecture will be held in the NIA’s Library at Odos Makri 11, in Makrigianni [Metro: Akropoli].

However you interpret the fact that there is absolutely nothing of value to watch on Greek TV, except if you are paying for a satellite service, this Fall we are going to give our loyal Friends a reason to get out of their ruts and come to the Institute on two evenings. The first treat that we have organized for Wednesday, November 6th at 7:30 pm in the CIG Library is a showing of the Canadian film “Men with Brooms” (102 minutes; English; 2002). Yes, this offbeat comedy set in a small town on a lake north of Toronto is about CURLING!!! Come for your dose of undiluted “Canadian Content”! As it features original music and special appearances by Canadian rockers the Tragically Hip this is a movie that any Canadian living in Athens can’t miss! Be there or be square!!!
special lecture and concert that we had planned for last fall that was cancelled at the last minute due to transportation problems??? Well, I am very pleased to announce that the accomplished classical and contemporary clarinetist and composer Krista Martynes will give a lecture and recital entitled, “The Integration of Traditional Music in European and Canadian Composition”. This will happen on Wednesday, December 4th at 7:30 pm in the CIG Library. We will use the occasion to hold afterwards our annual start the Holiday Season reception.
So put these Fall lectures and events on your dance card and come!

|The lecture at Brock University|
This lecture tour was the inspired idea of the Canadian Ambassador to the Hellenic Republic, Robert W. Peck, to conclude the yearlong celebration of the 70th anniversary of the formal establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and Greece. Zografia Welch of The Board of Directors of CIG organized the tour in an exemplary fashion.
