Nea Paphos served as the capital of Cyprus for several centuries in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The University of Sydney’s Paphos Theatre Archaeological Project has been excavating at the site of the ancient theatre and surrounding theatre quarter since 1995. Over this time, the team have revealed the remnants of the oldest theatre in Cyprus, a venue used for performance for more than six and a half centuries, as well as key urban infrastructure surrounding the theatre. Join Dr Craig Barker for an illustrated lecture exploring the importance of Paphos.
