The Changing Features

The Acropolis in Athens, Greece, has had a long history of human occupation. Over the course of millennia, the outcropping of rock that dominates the ancient city has been re-configured numerous times. At the same time, the top of the outcrop has seen a myriad of buildings, sculptures, and miscellaneous monuments of various kinds.  The history of the complex of structures and artwork that crowned the Acropolis has been and continues to be studied by students and scholars.  Analyses of the history and organization of the monuments on the Acropolis continues to fascinate.
