The ancient Athenian agora has been excavated by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens since 1931 and continue to the present day. In the 1950s the Hellenistic Stoa of Attalos was reconstructed on the east side of the agora, and today it serves as a museum and as storage and office space for the excavation team.
