Affiliated North American Field Projects

In 1928, the Greek government recognized the American School of Classical Studies at Athens as the permanent American archaeological presence in Greece. As such, the School is the official link between American researchers and the Greek Archaeological Service of the Ministry of Culture. Broadly responsible for all American archaeological projects in the country, the School obtains, assigns, and supervises the permits (granted by the Ministry of Culture) for excavations, surveys, and synergasias (cooperative projects). A list of affiliated projects of the School follows.
