The discoveries and excavations of the Heinrich Schliemann, Christos Tsountas and Arthur Evans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were built on the foundations of earlier explorations and studies. Dr. Nektarios Karademos (Aigeus) will speak to the Association of Friends of the Historical Archive of the Hellenic Archaeological Service about the Europeans and English travelers in the 18th and earlier 19th centuries whose investigations throughout the Aegean basin enabled the later development of a true prehistoric archaeology in Greece. These include Jean-Baptiste Lechevalier, William Gell, Edward Dodwell and Karl Hoeck. The lecture in Greek, based on archival research, is entitled, «Ανασκáπτπντας το παρελθόν της αιγαιακής προïστορικής αρχαιολογíας (από την Αναγένννση μέχρι και της πρήτες αρχαιλογικές ανασκαφές στα τέλη του 19ου αιώνα)». It will be given on Monday, October 22nd at 6:30 PM at the Historical Archive on Psaromiligkou 22, Kerameikos/Pysrri.
