Happy 25η Μαρτίου – Greek Independence Day !

Today marks the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution, which started on the 25th March 1821. To celebrate, we dag into the Greek archives of Archives Portal Europe to find 93 collections related to the Greek Revolution, from Bulgaria, Germany, the UK, France, and the Netherlands – you can see the results here: http://www.archivesportaleurope.net/search/-/s/d/1415
