2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Paphos Theatre Archaeological Project. We shall take a look back at some of our achievements over the course of celebrating this year.
It was in February 1995 that project founder Emeritus Professor Richard Green, the Renee and Arthur George Chair of Classical Archaeology at the University of Sydney visited Paphos along with Professor Margaret Clunies-Ross and Dr John Tidmarsh to do a reconnaissance of the site. Green would return to the site in May with a team of archaeologists and students to undertake the first season of excavation.
Here are some images from 25 years ago in February 1995, before the excavations began and with buildings now demolished.
