RP 187: Acropolis Restored


Members' price *

  • The individual contributors to these papers tell the story of the dedicated and detailed efforts to understand the work of previous generations on the Acropolis and then to restore the buildings as nearly as possible to their original architectural state. The result is a story of engagement with the extraordinary problems associated with these world heritage monuments and the challenges to preserve and present them for future generations.

    This is the first publication in English of the details of the astounding 35-year campaign of restoration of the ancient buildings of the Athenian Acropolis, published to mark the completion of the restoration, with papers written by the distinguished professionals responsible for research and restoration of these magnificent buildings. The Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and Propylaia are presented by experts in their history and conservation.

    This book represents a milestone in the history of the collaboration and friendship between the Acropolis Restoration Service and the British Museum.
