The Archaeology of Athens
An important part of the Society's work is its publishing. It brings out three annual titles: Praktika tes Archaiologikes Hetairias (Proceedings of the Archaeological Society), since 1837, containing detailed reports on the excavations and researches carried out in all parts of Greece; Archaiologike Ephemeris (since 1837), containing papers on subjects to do with Greek antiquities, including excavation reports; and Ergon tes Archaiologikes Hetairias (The Work of the Archaeological Society), since 1955, published every May, with brief reports on its excavations. Mentor is a quarterly whose contents consist mainly of short articles on ancient Greece and the history of Greek archaeology, as well as of news on the Society?s activities. All these are edited by the Secretary General. Besides the periodicals, there is the series of books with the general title The Library of the Archaeological Society at Athens: these are monographs on archaeological subjects and reports on excavations, mostly those carried out by the Society. The Society is administered by an eleven-member Board, elected every three years by the members in General Meeting. Every year, in May or thereabouts, the Secretary General of the Board reports on the Society?s activities over the past twelve months at a Public Meeting.

Before the Athens 2004 Olympics we were among the first people to visit the newly renovated National Archaeological Museum. It was really a treat to see the ancient statues, pottery, jewelry, weapons and utensils in their new improved surroundings. Since then they have opened another wing and have hundreds if not thousands of other artifacts on display. This page will give you an idea of what is in store for you at the National Museum of Athens, one of the best, if not the best archaeology museums in the world. This should be on your list of places not to miss while in Athens, Greece. Be sure to see the Antikithira device, an ancient computer, which was on display elsewhere when I took these photos.For hours and directions to the museum visit the Athens Museums Page

Edited by Elliot M. Abrams and AnnCorinne Freter, The Emergence of the Moundbuilders: The Archaeology of Tribal Societies in Southeastern Ohio presents the process of tribal formation and change in the region based on analyses of all available archaeological data from the Hocking River Valley. Drawing on the work of scholars in archaeology, anthropology, geography, geology, and botany, the collection addresses tribal society formation through such topics as the first pottery made in the valley, aggregate feasting by nomadic groups, the social context for burying their dead in earthen mounds, the formation of religious ceremonial centers, and the earliest adoption of corn. 041b061a72
