Change of Domain name

Because our original domain name (archaeometry.gr) was recently hi-jacked we decided to change the domain name for the official web page of the Hellenic Society for Achaeometry to www.archaeometry.org.gr. Please be aware that under the old domain name you will find a fake web page at the moment. In the case that you would like to contact us please use the new email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We are sorry for the inconveniences but the ransom for re-purchasing the original domain name is way out of our budget.
