About the lecture:
The Athienou Archaeological Project (AAP) is a multidisciplinary project focusing on the site of Athienou-Malloura and the surrounding valley in south-central Cyprus. Since 1990, the Athienou Archaeological Project (AAP) has been exploring the fertile Malloura Valley in central Cyprus through survey and excavation. This was one of the first modern projects whose explicit aim was to reconstruct ancient life in the understudied rural hinterland of the island. The focus of our excavations for the past 20 years has been a large and rich open-air sanctuary, which has yielded an abundance of votive dedications and ritual material.
