Publications: introduction

The French School at Athens circulates its research to a wider audience through publications. Each year around a dozen titles are published.


 

ANTIQUITY AND THE BYZANTINE ERA

The Bulletin de Correspondance Hellénique, which appears twice a year, includes articles on the Neolithic period and the Minoan and Mycenaean worlds as well as the archaeology and history of the ancient and Byzantine worlds. In the second annual issue they are accompanied by a yearly report on the School's work.

Theses, conference proceedings and monographs are found in the Bibliothèque des Écoles Françaises d’Athènes et de Rome (published in conjunction with the French School at Rome), the Suppléments of the BCH and the Études Épigraphiques series.

Each of the traditional excavation sites also has its own series: Exploration Archéologique de Délos, Fouilles de Delphes, Études Thasiennes, Études Crétoises, Études Péloponnésiennes, Études Chypriotes, Recherches archéologiques franco-albanaises. The Recherches franco-helléniques series publishes work carried out in collaboration with Greek organisations and researchers. Finally, aimed at a broader audience, the Sites et Monuments series consists of guides to the different sites explored by the FSA.

THE MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY PERIODS

Work on Greece and the Balkans in the modern and contemporary periods is found in the Mondes méditerranéens et balkaniques series (formerly Champs helléniques modernes et contemporains).

Knossos Roman Geophysics. Daniel Stewart (Leicester/BSA) and Jennifer Baird (Birkbeck/BSA) report on a third season of geophysical survey focused on Roman Knossos in order to provide a spatial framework into which excavated material from Roman Knossos can be situated (Fig. 1). The major aim in 2017 was to deploy Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) in areas which had already revealed promising results, in order to assess its value as a technique at Knossos, as well as to complete systematic GPS mapping of known standing remains. The team experimented in a variety of different conditions: paved and unpaved car parks and roads, olive groves and building interiors. Although GPR has great potential, it is more time-consuming than other techniques. The team therefore covered a much smaller area
