      French School: A century of excavations on Thasos
      Kathimerini [Greece], May 23, 2011

      It's the oldest French scientific institute based in a foreign country
      and the first archaeological institute that was established in the Greek
      capital. The French School of Athens was founded in 1846 by order of
      King Louis-Philippe, amid the wave of French philhellenism which
      followed the birth of the modern Greek state a few years earlier. The
      Athens-based school has a long history that is closely connected with
      the growing interest in Greek archaeology and the excavations of key
      archaeological sites, covering virtually all historical periods. Most
      people probably already know of the excavations at Delos, Argos,
      Philippi or Malia. However, the one on Thasos, an island in the
      northeast Aegean Sea, is no less important.
