Contemporary interventions on ancient monuments.

A major technical project and an extensive scientific research programme are currently in progress on the Acropolis for the conservation and restoration of its monuments. The aim of this educational pack is to present the restoration interventions being undertaken and the methodology being followed.

The pack includes ten educational leaflets divided into two groups and the film “The Acropolis Restoration Project”. The first group of leaflets presents the theory associated with the restoration of ancient monuments in general and with the Acropolis in particular. One of the leaflets is devoted to proposals for teachers about the use of the pack at school in nearly all curriculum subjects. The second group of leaflets gives a detailed presentation of the restoration projects being carried out on each of the Acropolis monuments.

The online application The Glafka Projectfurther familiarizes pupils with the restoration works on the Acropolis.
