Cypriot archeology comes to life in lectures
Cypriot archeologist tells Australian audiences about new archeological findings in Cyprus
Australians will hear about the mysteries of the ancient world, with Dr. George Georgiou delivering a number of lectures on Cypriot archaeology in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne next week.
The prominent senior archaeological officer in the department of antiquities of Cyprus will give three different lectures about the recent excavations around Cyprus and delve into their meaning.
With topics ranging from excavations in prehistoric Nicosia and the Phoenicians of Kition, and the archeology of Cyprus today, the lectures will shine a light on ancient civilizations, our ancestors and the way of life of many during these ancient times.
For the lecture "Cypriot archaeology today" in Sydney and Canberra, Dr. George will make a brief presentation of the major achievements in Cypriot archeology from the earliest occupation of the island before about 10,000 years until the end of antiquity.
Sponsored by many including the Cyprus High Commission, the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens, there will be two talks each in Sydney and Melbourne and one in Canberra.
All lectures are free and in English. Only the NSW lecture "Cypriot archaeology today" will be conducted in Greek.
