The Association for the Preservation of Historical Documents and Cultural Heritage “Arxeion Taxis” is a collective effort that aspires to actively contribute to preserve, showcase, and give prominence to cultural heritage, emphasizing historical documents and especially historical archives.

In this light, Arxeion Taxis aims to collaborate with public/state organizations, groups that advance relevant scientific initiatives, and a wider network of citizens who are aware of the significance of archives.
