The Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens conducts a range of research and educational activities both within Australia and in Greece as well as supporting a field project in Cyprus. As the only Australian research institute in Greece the AAIA serves as a gateway to Greece for Australian researchers from other institutions. We are one of 18 international “Schools” (in effect tertiary research institutes) officially recognised by the Greek Government. In this capacity the AAIA secures fieldwork permits from the Greek Ministry of Culture for Australian archaeological projects in Greece and is involved in the associated publication of their research. The AAIA also plays a vital role in securing, from the Greek Ministry of Culture, study permits to archaeological material in Greece for Australian academics and students.
