   Evangelia Stefani : National ideology and the management of antiquities in Greece during the first decades of the 20th century. The paper attempts to recreate the historical setting of the era immediately following the Liberation of Northern Greece in 1912, focusing on the first archaeological investigations by Greek and foreign archaeologists, the symbolic and political use of Greek archaeology and its very important role in the shaping of national ideology at the time. The importance given to antiquities by the Greek government is evident in state care and measures for the salvation, revelation, and promotion of antiquities and against illicit trading of antiquities. Antiquity was really important in the formation of the new Greek state, as it led to the return of Greece to the historical spotlight in the European 18 th  and 19 th  centuries and regarding Macedonia in specific, the relation of ancient heritage with national ideology developed on two main axes: the ancient kingdom of Macedonia with the emblematic personality of Alexander the Great and the important Byzantine heritage.
