  • [01] Excavations continued in 2013 at Ayia Varvara-Asprokremmos site

    Excavations in 2013 at the 9th millennium site of Ayia Varvara-Asprokremnos focused on the recording of three structures, evidence of the industrial activities carried out at the site and documenting the sequence of occupation.

    The excavations were conducted from the end of March to mid-June 2013 under the direction of Dr Carole McCartney on behalf of the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus working in partnership with Cornell University and the University of Toronto.

    The site, currently dated by radio-carbon to between c. 8800-8600 BC cal., marks the initiation of the Neolithic period on Cyprus at a time when the transition from hunting to farming economies was beginning throughout the Middle East. Taking the Neolithic Revolution into the Mediterranean zone, the occupants of Ayia Varvara-Asprokremnos carried cultural traditions and intensive resource procurement and manufacturing activity to the island some 11,000 years before present.

    [02] Capital controls to be lifted first months of 2014

    Capital controls in Cyprus will be lifted in the first months of 2014.
