Archaeologists wrap up 2005 excavations in ancient Idalion
Excavations in the Lower City of the ancient city-kingdom of Idalion (Cyprus) this year brought to the surface workshops as early as the 13th century BCE, as well as limestone female sculptures, lamp fragments and terracotta figurines, while other findings indicate that the occupation of the site of ancient Idalion probably began in the Lower City North in the 15th century BCE.
According to the Department of Antiquities, the 2005 season of excavation was carried out by the Lycoming College Expedition to Idalion under the direction of Dr. Pamela Gaber.
