The new publishing house Archaeologist’s Home focuses exclusively on Greek archeology and, in general, on Greek culture. It is, therefore, the only publishing house in Greece with this specific subject.
Its primary purpose is to promote the science of Greek archeology and to assist in the immediate and as thorough as possible publication of the work of archaeologists, as well as non-profit organisations, associations, foundations or other institutions of archaeological interest. From this perspective, the Archaeologist’s Home hopes to support many and different archaeological publications, such as dissertations, publication of excavations, conference proceedings, catalogs of exhibitions and museums, or even archaeological guides.
Particular emphasis is placed on the history of archeology, archival studies and researches, biographies of archaeologists and publications of archaeological material, often forgotten in museum depots. At the same time, it supports other relative sciences to archeology or other professional directions, such as history, folklore and conservation. Particular emphasis is also placed on literary or children’s books with themes inspired by the richness of the Greek tradition.
The Archaeologist’s Home aims to give a new dimension to archaeological publications, combining scientific validity with high quality and careful edition. The publishing house undertakes both print and electronic publications, since the latter are the most advantageous option in the period of a severe economic downturn in Greece. It supports both Greek and foreign language publications; in particular, it assists the Greek archaeologists who often turn to foreign publishing houses in order to publish their work.
