    The Research Technology in Human Sciences Seminar

    The French School at Athens is inaugurating in 2017 a new seminar, named Research technology in Human Sciences. Its aim is to bring together the different actors of research in order to discuss methods and tools used in Human and Social Science disciplines, such as Archaeology, History, Geography and Sociology, in order to present techniques and specialties that are not so well known or that are new, to share experiences and good practices. Specialists of spatial analysis, of digital recognition tools, of material and residues analysis, of databases, of network analysis, of restauration, etc. will be participating in this seminar.

    The meetings will take place on Mondays at 6pm, on a monthly basis, in the Lecture Room of the FSA.

    Numismatic Meetings

    Organised jointly by the French School at Athens, the Belgian School at Athens, the University of Athens and the German Archaeological Institute, the Numismatic Meetings are held on a monthly basis, on Mondays at 6pm.
    The seminar aims to highlight trends in numismatic research in Greece, by drawing attention to the strength of the links that unite this discipline with history and archaeology. Indeed, all sources and all fields associated with numismatics may be the subject of papers: technology, metrology, iconography, and monetary, financial and economic history.
    Speakers, from Greece and elsewhere, are invited to give presentations on the current state of the discipline, new research, or major new finds, in a lecture lasting about an hour, followed by questions.

     Workshop Christianities

    Eastern Christianities went through comparable processes of development, but connections have never been made between their respective historiographies. The aim of this project is to compare the changes in these different Churches and cultural areas using a number of criteria (book production, details of dogma, monastic orders and so on) and to study the different forms of connection between the (Catholic and Protestant) East and West, but also within the East itself. Key research areas:  cultural areas within the longue durée, studies of religious themes, learning, tradition and the history of texts.
    This workshop is one of the projects to be carried out in 2017/2018 as part of a call issued by the Campus Condorcet public institution in order to support cooperative academic activities.
    The workshops will take place in Paris.

    Archaeology in Greece ONLINE

    Ligourio, "Pyramida". Christos Piteros (?' ????) reports on the 'pyramid' tower located north-west of the town of Ligourio, 230 m east of the post-Byzantine church of Agia Marina, dated from the 4th to the beginning of the 3rd centuries BC. It is referred to as the 'pyramid' tower based on its sloping ground-floor outer walls which provided extra stability for the multi-storey building (Fig. 1). The base of the tower was rectangular (12.5x14.0 m.). It was built on sloping rocky bedrock and had a N-S orientation. The entrance was in the east and led into the interior via four square rooms of 5.4 m. In the north-eastern corner of the building were the remains of a Roman workshop in which there was a built sink (1.08x0.58-0.80x0.90 m.) and a water pipe of 0.20 m. in width. In th
