What's Important


Canadian classical scholarship and the Institute have had strong ties to Boeotia since the 1960s. First, John Fossey, then with Jacques Morin, followed by Duane Roller and now the Eastern Boeotia Archaeological Project have focused research and fieldwork on various topics related to this vast territory in central Greece.  Thanks to a generous donation by John Fossey, the CIG now possessed the archives of the excavations at Kastron Khostion, ancient Khorsiai, which took place in 1980 and 1983. Our library also includes copies of all works by John Fossey relating to his work in Boeotia. His thoughtful contributions to the Archives and to the Library strengthen our existing collections relating to Boeotian studies.
