Welcome to the second in the new series of British School at Athens' Newsletters, which offer up-to-date information on all our events and activities. This issue focuses on the courses that we run for postgraduate and undergraduate students and on BSA-sponsored archaeological fieldwork programmes over the past year. It also offers a list of upcoming events in the first half of 2018.  We hope you enjoy it and take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
