Not to be confused with the privately sponsored Archaeological Society of Athens.

The Greek Archaeological Service (Greek: Αρχαιολογική Υπηρεσία) is a state service, under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture, responsible for the oversight of all archaeological excavations, museums and the country's archaeological heritage in general.

It is the oldest such service in Europe, being founded in 1833, immediately after the establishment of the modern Greek state.[1][2]
