Bronze Age to Byzantine finds as project begins in Amargeti

Artifacts from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine period were found during the first archaeological survey by Graz University in Amargeti, Paphos, the department of antiquities announced on Friday.

The first campaign focused on a general analysis of the cultural landscape of Amargeti as well as on intensive field walking at the locales of Asomatos and Petros Anthropos.

“The survey aims at the systematic and interdisciplinary investigation of the archaeological landscape and remains of Amargeti, as well as the preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage for the benefit of the people of Amargeti and society in general,” an announcement said.

“The archaeological aims will be achieved by documenting surface finds, detecting and analysing subsurface structures by geophysical methods and remote sensing.”

The survey was conducted from October 22 to 29 in cooperation with the department of antiquities and the Cyprus University of Technology. Future fieldwork will be conducted in 2020.
