    [04] FRENCH ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPERIDITION - CYPRUS - EXCAVATIONS

    ‘he French Archaeological Expedition at Pafos continued excavations at Fabrika Hill from the 15th of April until the 10th of May, 2010. The excavation took place in two mains areas: the northern slope of the hill and behind the ancient theatre to the southeast.

    According to a press release by the Department of Antiquities, on the north side, the excavations continued on the east-west wall, built with stone pillars. This wall appears to be the back wall of a house, probably dating to the Hellenistic period. It was backfilled at the time of the Flavian emperors (beginning of the 2nd half of the 1st century AD). Other walls were uncovered east of this house.

    Excavation in this area will continue in November. A trial sondage that was opened against the main terrace wall (40 m. long), which was revealed in 2008, confirmed that this north-south wall was built during the 1st century BC/ 1st century AD. The entire area seems to have then been filled.
