Anglo-Hellenic League

The Anglo-Hellenic League is an organisation supporting and promoting Anglo-Greek relations and understanding. It was founded in 1913 in London and it carries out charitable and cultural work. Since 1990 it publishes the biannual "Anglo-Hellenic Review".

From 1986, the league awards annually the Runciman Award (named in honor of the writer and historian Steven Runciman) for books published in english and relating to Greece and hellenism.
