The UCL Institute of Archaeology, The High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus in the UK & The British Museum are co-organising the symposium 'Cypriot archaeology, pre-modern material culture, and cultural heritage in the UK' that will take place on Friday, 5 April 2019, in G6 Lecture Theatre and A.G. Leventis Gallery, at the Institute of Archaeology.

The symposium will be inaugurated on Thursday, 4 April 2019, at 18:30 with a keynote lecture by Jennifer M. Webb, Adjunct Professor, Department of Archaeology, La Trobe University, Melbourne & Senior Research Fellow, Department of History and Archaeology, University of Cyprus. Dr Webb will deliver a lecture on 'Cyprus in the Middle Bronze Age: New evidence from the Anglo-Cypriot excavations at Lapithos in 1913' that will be hosted at the High Commission of Cyprus, 13 St. James’s Square, SW1Y 4LB. Booking for this event is available here.

The symposium itself will consist of fifteen-minute presentations followed by discussion, primarily on UK-based projects related to pre-modern Cypriot archaeology, ancient history with an emphasis on material culture, and cultural heritage, including museum collections. This event will provide a platform to meet, network, present research and explore possibilities for future research collaborations. While this event is organised primarily for researchers and heritage professionals working in the UK, scholars from other institutions in neighbouring countries and in Cyprus are also welcome.

The programme and abstracts of papers are available to download here.

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Maria Dikomitou-Eliadou.
