The area around the village of Kissonerga near Paphos, Cyprus, is rich in prehistoric remains but these small-scale and dispersed sites are often difficult for the general visitor to appreciate. In order to increase understanding of their archaeology and raise awareness of their cultural heritage issues, there is a major project in progress under the directorship of Lindy Crewe of the University of Manchester to integrate the archaeology of Kissonerga into an accessible narrative and to tell the story of its communities over 10,000 years of occupation.
Construction is completed at Kissonerga! Read about the process and the end result.
