Greece



The National Archive of Monuments of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture in Athens (GR) continues its participation in the AREA project through various research and documentation activities. Drawing on the rich material of the Historic Archive of the Hellenic Archaeological Service, a number of themes will be explored, focusing on the history of Mediterranean Archaeology and the construction of European Identities. Research will concentrate primarily on two areas: 'Archaeologists Abroad' and 'Dictatorships and Archaeology' - themes which offer different perspectives on the interaction between archaeology and the processes of identity formation at a national and international level. This research will develop in collaboration with other AREA partners, providing a comparative framework for the study of the complex development of the discipline of archaeology. In terms of documentation, the National Archive of Monuments will continue to enrich the on-line catalogue of archaeological archives held in Greece, ultimately seeking to identify and describe all archival fonds relating to archaeology in Greece.
