So when Athens decided in the early 1990s to build a new metro system, the city first sent in teams of archeologists, who discovered and have preserved a staggering array of ancient artifacts, including the remains of homes, marketplaces and temples.
The excavations undertaken in Athens by the State Archaeological Service (3rd and 1st Divisions) on the sites where the metro stations were to be built, unearthed remnants of the long history of the city, while revealing a multitude of hitherto unknown topographical details. Five hundred exhibits made of clay, bronze, marble, glass, and ivory outline the development of human life in Athens from the 17th century BC to the 6th century AD, from the Mycenean to the Byzantine period, through what we know as the Geometric, Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman eras.
