Welcome to the British School at Athens' new Newsletter which replaces our Annual Report and will appear in June and December. The Newsletter offers up-to-date information on all our events and activities throughout the year, as well as introducing some of the people involved in the work of the School. This first issue reports on the BSA’s academic programme from October 2016 to June 2017, picking up the narrative where the 2015-16 Annual Report left off. Items include events in Athens and elsewhere, as well as profiles of some of the researchers resident during the year and reports from the Fitch Laboratory, Knossos Research Centre, Library and Archive. We hope you will enjoy this and future issues of the Newsletter!
