Once again the Pascha recess is upon the Institute. We close today, Friday at 1:00 PM, for two weeks and reopen for business on Monday, April 16th at 9:00 AM.

In the meantime, Metaxia, Romanos and I will, for a change, see what Athens has to offer for Pascha. Jonathan and Amelie will continue their exploration of eastern Crete. Chris and his family are still pondering their options, though Nafplio and Monemvasia are on their list. Katy will spend a few days in Thessaloniki, and Matt has planned a short trip to Rome.

SNAP is almost everywhere in April and May

Prof. Tristan Carter (McMaster University) is coming to Greece immediately after Pascha to share with us the latest from SNAP (Stélida Naxos Archaeological Project). First, he travels to Naxos for the opening on Saturday evening, April 14th, of a related photographic exhibition entitled, ‘Neanderthals on Naxos! The Prehistoric Archaeology of Stélida’ . This will be held in Chora at the Cultural Centre of Naxos (the former Ursuline School). This Centre is located at the highest point in the Kastro. The exhibition will run until the end of May.

Then on Monday evening, May 21st he will present ‘Neanderthals on Naxos! New Work on Early Prehistoric Stélida’  for the Cycladic Seminar. This will be held at the Archaeological Society of Athens (Panepistimiou 22) at 7:00 PM.

So from all of us to all of you, we wish you an early Kalo Mina kai Kalo Pascha!
