Modern city and man. A conscious relationship?
The role of archaeological sites in this relationship
Maria Xepapadakou, archaeologist

The relationship between man and his natural place of residence is accomplished by a conscious and by an unconscious way as well. But when the place loses its original characteristics, this relationship fades. The archaeological sites as a vehicle of landscape elements, consist an opportunity for the inhabitants of the urban space in order to redefine their bonds with the physiognomy of the city within the place and time.

The boundaries of archaeological sites should not be an obstacle in their interaction with the city and its inhabitants. Eleusis.

The historic character of Eleusis within one picture. The ancient past meets the modern era (Travlos’ house) and the industrial period.
The interpretation of archaeological sites is performed in many ways, depending on the historical subject, human.
Within the boundaries of the theater of Dionysus, the view of the city is complemented by the necessary openings created by the Temple of Zeus and the Panathenaic stadium, next to the region of Plaka.
