It's International Archaeology Day!

17 October 2015

A question often asked is; considering how much has been found, how much is there left? Recent studies suggest that archaeologists have discovered a fraction of one percent of the archaeological sites all over the world. The record and safeguard of our shared cultural heritage continues to be paramount. Archaeology provides a more balanced record of the past, the historical record is often biased toward the wealthy and powerful, archaeology reveals these social prejudices and tells the story of those people that history has forgotten.

In celebration of International Archaeology Day, Hellenic Museum Curator Sarah Craig takes a closer look at the depths of archaeology.
