Some of you may remember when they visited several years ago. Well fortunately for us, Lita and Tim will be in San Francisco in January for the Annual Meetings of the Archaeological Institute of America. They have graciously offered to meet with us to share some of their research and new book, The Archaeology of Kythera and to just mingle with  Hellenes, Philhellenes, and history enthusiasts  who live in another part of the world!

Dr. Lita Tzortzopoulou-Gregory is by descent Kytherian, but she was born in Australia.  She grew up, however, in the village of Karavas on the island of Kythera and Greek is her native language. She did her university studies in Australia, primarily at the University of Sydney and Latrobe University in Melbourne, where she received her PhD degree.  She has taught extensively in the USA, primarily at Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College.  She is currently Executive Officer of the Australian Archaeological Institute in Athens and is based in Athens.

Dr. Timothy Gregory was born and grew up in the USA and received his PhD from the University of Michigan. He has carried out archaeological fieldwork and taught students in Greece for nearly half a century. He is Director of the Ohio State University Excavations at Isthmia in the Korinthia and Deputy Director of the Australian Paliochora-Kythera Archaeological Survey.
