  • [01] Rantidi Forest excavations indicate medieval activity in ancient Paphos

    The results of the Rantidi Forest excavations, in the Paphos District, indicate that the medieval activity in ancient Paphos extended to the south and east into the Rantidi Forest, while this medieval presence at Lakkos tou Frangou may have been defensive in nature, guarding the only route which existed at that time which accessed the Paphian region.

    Survey this year, under the direction of Dr. Georgia Bonny Bazemore, the Jeffers R. Chertok Professor of Ancient History at Eastern Washington University, USA, revealed extensive medieval remains located at the eastern area of the Rantidi Forest known as Lakkos tou Frankou, and scatters of dressed building stone and at least one partially standing wall were recorded.

    These areas have produced large numbers of sgraffito ware, the very fine, highly decorated glazed pottery which characterizes this time period, associated with numbers of large pithoi fragments, indicating the storage of necessary food items.
