    1985

    New statutes for the FSA that set out its role as a 'public academic, cultural and professional institution… Its essential purpose is research and research training in all areas related to ancient and Byzantine Greece. Its mission is also to be open to the many different aspects of the civilisation of the ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary Greek worlds'. The FSA is at this time given an Academic Board and a Board of Trustees. It receives members and, in a significant development, scholarship-holders.

    1989

    Recruitment of a Publications Assistant (the position had been provided for in the statutes of 1985).

    1990

    Creation of a position for a ninth member, designed to be granted to a specialist in modern and contemporary Greece (the first member to be a modern specialist is admitted in July 1990).

    1992

    Celebration of the hundredth anniversary of excavations at Delphi and the touring exhibition 'Delphi and the Origins of Apollo'. Thanks to the FSA's favourable financial position, it is able to develop its academic, technical and administrative services. The administration of these services is computerised.

    Academic activities

    Although the list of sites on which the FSA works remains unchanged, with excavations at Amathus, Argos, Delos, Delphi, Dikili Tash, Malia and Thasos, unprecedented initiatives are undertaken, associated with the development of modern archaeological practices (such as surveys and underwater excavations). Creation of computerised databases (amphora handles, coins, mosaics). After 1989, the School is able to turn to the Balkans and the eastern countries (agreements are made with Albania, Bulgaria, Russia and Ukraine).

    Kifissia, Kifissias Avenue 313 (O.T. 167, Sector III, property of P. Chalari). Maria Stefanopoulou (B' ????) reports on the discovery of a Hellenistic and Roman house, and a Byzantine workshop (Fig. 1). Part of a building consisting of rubble walls and a courtyard was excavated and dated in the Late Hellenistic period. Contemporary to the building is a rock-cut drain. In Roman times, the building was extended, since more walls were constructed. These are rubble walls with tiles. Contemporary to this phase is a cairn found east of the building and a pi-shaped drain. In the Late Byzantine period the building appears to have been converted into a workshop, since two kilns were excavated - one inside the building (Fig. 2) and the second outside. The kilns contained Late Byzantine pottery sherd
