MAPPING ANCIENT ATHENS
Our knowledge about the past of the city of Athens is based on specific archaeological sites and on systematically
excavated monuments that are recognisable and well-studied. But what was the fabric of the ancient city? What have
the big excavations for public works and the hundreds of smaller-scale interventions on private plots brought to light?
The project Mapping Ancient Athens is under the auspices of the Ephorate of Antiquities of the City of Athens, the City of Athens and the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO and was made possible through the generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) (lead donor), the Packard Humanities Institute and the Aegeas Non-Profit Civil Company.
