Odysseus' legacy in Newcastle: an overview of the city's Greek settlement

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


This essay provide an insight into Newcastle's Greek settlement, from the 1830s through to the late 20th century. From the 1880s, early collective settlement began to establish a ‘transformative’ presence in the city’s food-catering industry – most notably through Ithacan and Arcadian Greeks. By the late 1940s, a formal Greek Orthodox Community of Newcastle was created. Following World War II, Greeks arriving from a variety of areas in Greece overlaid the earlier regional chains of migration. Through these new arrivals, and the offspring of earlier Greek settlers, a diversification of occupations became evident.
