Established by the Simone & Cino Del Duca Foundation, which honours the legacy of one of the leading personalities in the French publishing industry, the €150,000 ($224,502) ‘Grand Prix d’archéologie’ is awarded to help with archaeology projects in France or abroad. Following the recommendation from the Institut de France, the prize went to The French School at Athens which has carried out archaeological fieldwork at major sites across Greece, including excavations at Philippi, Samothrace, and Delphi. The works conducted in Thassos, in cooperation with the Greek Culture Ministry, are being carried out at a 1,400m2 site near the port of Thassos and uncovered a fifth-century residence built on the hillside of the acropolis of the ancient city of Thassos, between Dionysios and Artemisio, north-east of the ancient market.
