As part of Pafos2017 European Capital of Culture celebrations, the 11-15 October saw the city host the international colloquium Nea Paphos and Western Cyprus: New Archaeological and Historical Perspectives. The conference was the follow up to a successful similar event held in Avignon in 2012.
Presenters and guests got the chance to hear each others' new findings, new research and current issues.
The Paphos Theatre Archaeological Project was well represented with papers from team members Dr Craig Barker, Professor Diana Wood Conroy, Dr Bernadette McCall, Anthoulla Vassiliades and Geoff Stennett. A site tour of the Paphos theatre and the other archaeological features of Fabrika hill was lead by Craig Barker and Claire Balandier.
The conference papers will be published in due course. The program for the colloquium can be found here.
