No, if anything the more important work is under way now in library and research institutions around the world. Professor Richard Green is currently working at the Institute of Classical Studies in London, and among his research is architectural parallels with the Paphos theatre. Dr Smadar Gabrieli has been compiling catalogues from Israel, Dr Craig Barker has been focusing on trench descriptions in Sydney, and the team architect Geoff Stennett has been doing some exciting CAD models of the architectural phases. Other specialists have been fine-tuning their catalogue descriptions, and writing interpretations of the finds.
It is essential that all archaeological projects publish and publish regularly and cohesively. It is one of our obligations to the Department of Antiquities that we publish. We are currently seeing the final report on the first decade of excavations as a three-volume report and are working towards that aim as soon as we can.
In the meantime, many senior team members have been contribution some of their research work towards smaller articles and book chapters. One other way that we focus our research is to present papers or posters at conferences. One such example is the poster explaining the work on the 2010 season Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) research project. In April of 2103 a poster was presented at 'Remote Sensing in Archaeology' theme of the First International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment' held in Paphos in Cyprus. The poster was written by Guy Hazell, Amanda Dusting (pictured above with the poster in Paphos), Sam Moody and Craig Barker, and we were so very honoured to win an award at the conference for the poster!
It is one of the way that archaeologists can share their results with their peers, while the final reports are completed. Throughout 2013 other team members have also contributed to conferences, and papers from these presentations will appear in print in due course.
