A clean site shows that we take great care in the process of our excavation of both trench 14A, situated at the top edge of the theatre and 14B on the lower east.
From day one we've been giving the site a clean up of all weeds, and rubbish where noticeable.
To the naked eye the weeds don't look fantastic , blocking the views of the archaeological theatre but its also impacts upon what happens underneath the soil as the plant's roots dislodge the archaeological remains - this then becomes bioterbation.
Archaeological sites in Cyprus are of major importance to society and the country's economy, providing a great opportunity for the tourism industry today. So its of vital to keep the site clean for the future.
