Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens

The Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens was established in 1980 following negotiations with the Greek government. The Institute is one of the “Foreign Schools” in Athens, similar to other scholarly institutions in the capital of Greece maintained by major European and American countries. Some of these have been in existence for well over a century and Australia is most fortunate to be represented in this prestigious company.
