AbstractThe French School of Athens is a French university located in Athens . Its aim is to promote the study of language, history and Greek antiquities.Created in 1846 under the July Monarchy, the school is a philhelenism product and France's willingness to restore to power in the East. In the late nineteenth century century, it was illustrated by initiating several major archaeological sites, including those of Delos and Delphes The French School of Athens has continued its research for 150 years on ancient Greece. The report proposes a meeting with a young scholar, Clarisse Prêtre, who just joined this prestigious school that receives only two students per year. Jean Michel Saulnier, secretary general of the school and Roland Etienne, Director, are interviewed. The report outlines the main steps of the archaeological excavations on the site of Delphi,from the thirties to the present day.
