  • The French School at Athens has seven permanent archaeological missions: six in Greece itself, Dikili-Tash, Philippi, Thasos, Delphi, Argos, Delos, and Malia (in Crete), and one on the south-west coast of the island of Cyprus, at Amathus. These sites form a not insignificant part of the scientific heritage of the School (see the history of the School). 

    The School also conducts its archaeological activities within the framework of temporary archaeological missions, whether in Greece (Itanos, Lâto and Dreros in Crete), in Cyprus (Shillourokambos and Potamia), or in Albania (Sovjan, Apollonia, Byllis). In addition, the School provides support for the excavation of the Kouphovouno site in Greece and to the mission studying Durrës in Albania. 

    Several of the missions benefit or have benefitted from FSA/MAEE co-funding, as is the case for Dikili Tash, Kouphovouno and Itanos in Greece, for Amathus, Shillourokambos, and Potamia in Cyprus, and for Sovjan, Apollonia, and Byllis in Albania.

Rectangular bipartite houses were excavated. Their walls were carefully constructed and some of them had herringbone patterns. A hearth was discovered in Building A as well as terracotta and schist roof tiles. The houses had been built along the sides of a stone-paved road. Cairns, structures and pits were revealed in the southern part of the property. It appears that these are the remains of a workshop. Numerous EHII and Mycenaean pottery sherds were found. Some sherds may also date in the MH. In addition, tools and obsidian flakes were collected. The settlement appears to have had more than one construction pha
