The Historic Continuation of Athens

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    The urban network of the city of Athens is still based on the ancient one. The axes of main streets are the same or follow those of ancient roads. Though the most impressive fact is the continuity in use of the urban area. And this is what is called historic sequel and the continuation of Athenian landscape.  The National Foundation of Research recently organised a series of twelve tutorials which focus on the Archaeology of Athens. Twelve scholars presented the most crucial aspects of the history of Athenian urban and suburban space from pre-historic times to modern ones. Some of the texts have translated into English. National Foundation of Research: Archaeology of the City of Athens
