“1912-2012 A Century of Research in Prehistoric Macedonia”. International Conference
2012 is an anniversary year for the city of Thessaloniki and for northern Greece, as a century ago it was incorporated in the Greek state. Through this century archaeological research has undergone various phases, has adapted to the varying historical conditions, by either keeping a critical position or serving them. Through this century much have been accomplished through the work of numerous Greek and foreign archaeologists, the Archaeological Service, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Greek and foreign Archaeological Institutions, but even more remain to be done and could shape the research goals of the upcoming decades. It is therefore a chance for an up-to-date review of what prehistoric research has succeeded, for a critical approach to its theoretical and methodological orientations and for setting off future perspectives.
The Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, regarding of most importance the overall and effective presentation of the research results, as well as the initiation of a dialogue that is not confined among scientists but is related to the social implications of archaeology, is organizing the Conference for the Century of Research in Prehistoric Macedonia, in cooperation with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
