It's been some time since your last one, and you keep to produce well-sourced, interesting articles on a variety of Greece-related topics. From the Modern Greek Enlightenment and the historic schools of the Greek diaspora to Byzantine literature, Greek aviation pioneers and, of course, the history and geography of Epirus. For enriching Wikipedia's coverage about Greece and Greek history, I award you with the official barnstar of WikiProject Greece. Άξιος! Cplakidas (talk) 19:29, 25 October 2010 A Greek geography article that needs to be promoted is a difficuly task, good luck CrazyMartini (talk) 21:24, 20 November 2010 For continued excellent contributions on neglected areas of Greek history, and especially for the long-desired article on the Great Famine. Well done! Constantine ✍ 14:00, 17 September 2011 (UTC) For your many efforts in writing articles on Albania and the Albanians of Southern Albania and for the many edits that you have made to improve Albanian related articles, may you enjoy this barnstar for your Albanian related efforts. It seems like you love Albania and the Albanians and you truly deserve this Albanian barnstar of Albanian National Merit. With my whole Albanian heart, from an Albo. Albanically yours.

Portsmouth Cathedral
Portsmouth Cathedral, officially known as the Cathedral Church of St Thomas of Canterbury, is an Anglican cathedral church in Portsmouth, England. It is the cathedral of the Diocese of Portsmouth and the seat of the bishop of Portsmouth. The cruciform building was constructed in the Romanesque style on land donated by Norman lord Jean de Gisors in the 1180s and dedicated to Saint Thomas Becket, who was martyred around ten years earlier. It was made a cathedral upon the establishment of the Diocese of Portsmouth, which was split from the Diocese of Winchester in 1927, after which it was extended in a "Neo-Byzantine" style by Charles Nicholson.
