The Hellenic Institute of Egyptology and the Archaeologist’s Home co-organize an exciting Seminar on Egyptian culture, a journey of knowledge and archeology that will lead participants gradually to the approach of ancient Egyptian civilization, a culture that literally “enchants”. The seminar includes 20 full two-hour weekly lessons, with contemporary interactive audiovisual media, and will begin on March 6, 2019. The participants will have the opportunity to be “initiated” – by Dr Alicia Maravellia, an internationally recognized Egyptologist – in the ancient Egyptian language, hieroglyphic writing, to know history, art, religion, music, the science of ancient Egyptians.

Archaeologist's Home launches a series of archaeological seminars. The first seminar, entitled "Greeks: to where and from where? An archaeological and interdisciplinary search in space and time", is carried out in collaboration with Aegeus - Society for Aegean Prehistory. In this seminar of ten thematic lessons, Dr. Theodoros G. Giannopoulos will examine the evolution of Greeks, "from where" (πόθεν) and "to where" (ποῖ δὴ), in a diachronic and interdisciplinary way. The seminar will present the latest scientific developments on the origins of Greek civilisation, through the relevant research work of the speaker.

The Acropolis Museum inaugurated on 14 September 2018 the exhibition "From the forbidden city: imperial apartments of Qianlong". The exhibition presents personal items, works of art and furniture from the enclosed apartments of China Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799) in the Forbidden City of Beijing. The objects represent a century of Chinese culture. The Archaeologist's Home, through its collaborator Dr. Vicky Elefanti, has undertaken the translation of the texts of the exhibition.

The Archaeologist's Home is happy to present the book Gift to Anna Apostolaki. Her life, work and contribution (Αντίδωρο στην Άννα Αποστολάκι. Η ζωή, το έργο και η συνεισφορά της). The book was published by the Lyceum Club of Greek Women. The  Archaeologist's Home undertook the design and the production of the book. The book publishes the results of a workshop held in Athens on 24 November 2015. It was dedicated to the life and work of the archaeologist and folklorist Anna Apostolaki (1881-1958), a pioneering woman of Greek science. She was one of the first students of the University of Athens, one of the first female members of many scientific societies and the first woman director of a museum in Greece.

The Archaeologist’s Home was founded during the turmoil of the recent financial and cultural crisis in Greece. Its primary aim is to bring new, innovative and imaginative ideas to archaeology and Greek culture in general. In particular to act as a home for archaeologists as well as those working more generally within the field and to enable them to achieve their full potential.
