History


The Dipylon society was established in January 2014. The motivation behind the foundation of the Society surfaced during previous research projects (the fortification walls and the road network of ancient Athens) by its current members, which highlighted the need for a collective effort to manage and study a very rich, but largely scattered and unchartered, archival material.

Dipylon attempts to serve as a bridge among archaeologists, historians, architects, survey engineers and specialists in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), in order to combine archaeological and cartographic data through the use of digital technology.
