In the 1990s, there were times when it appeared as though the then Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens would not see the light of the new millennium. In 2015, with the now Canadian Institute in Greece’s 40th anniversary of its official recognition as one of the foreign archaeological schools and institutes by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture fast approaching, the authors thought it would be appropriate to celebrate this achievement with a colloquium. With the full support of the Board of Directors, this auspicious occasion was marked by a two-day gathering on June 10th and 11th, 2016, in Athens entitled “From Maple to Olive: A Colloquium to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Canadian Institute in Greece.”
