We would like to introduce ourselves as the new editors of Past Imperfect XX (2017):
Gino Canlas: I am a PhD candidate in Classical Archaeology, supervised by Dr. Margriet Haagsma, and I study the archaeology of Greek religion and specialize in the region of Thessaly, where I examine how different populations expressed their social and political identities through cult. I am also a field archaeologist and am a long-term staff member of the Kastro Kallithea Archaeological Project in Thessaly, Greece. I have also excavated in Mytilene and Transylvania. My hobbies include language-hoarding, phởcrastinating, and being right about Harry Potter.
