Abstract:This paper aspires to briefly examine the prehistoric Collection in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. It also focuses on this Collection’s particularities and on the reasons behind their existence: these are preliminary remarks, which will be extensively elaborated in the context of a research program.

In contrast to the respective European national museums, which evolved from private collections, the National Archaeological Museum of Athens was created from the outset as a national ark. The approach of archaeology as ancient art history concerns primarily the classical period, but it will be shown that it also influences in a certain degree the interpretation of prehistory.

Although belonging to one Collection, the three prehistoric periods (Neolithic, Cycladic, Mycenaean) are exhibited in a manner suggesting different approaches on behalf of the Museum’s curators
