The Archaeology of Ancient Cyprus



The Mediterranean Island of Cyprus has a rich Prehistoric, Classical and Medieval past.  In recent years research has shown that the earliest occupation of the island dates to over 10,000 years ago, and over these millennia the Cypriot people have developed their own distinctive artefacts, buildings, art and culture. With mild spring weather, Cyprus lends itself perfectly to escape the cooler weather at home whilst being able to enjoy your time away exploring comfortably.  

Among the highlights are three UNESCO World Heritage sites, Khirokitia and the Archaeological Park and Tomb of the Kings at Paphos, along with a host of other fascinating sites, including the very spot where the newborn  goddess Aphrodite came ashore in her shell, a popular subject for classical painters.
