The University of Sydney Archaeological Excavations of the Paphos Theatre Site, Cyprus

The Department of Archaeology of the University of Sydney has been excavating the site of the ancient Hellenistic-Roman theatre of Nea Paphos, under the auspices of the Department of Antiquities of the Republic of Cyprus since 1995.

The project is directed by Emeritus Professor J.R. Green, Dr Smadar Gabrieli and Dr Craig Barker. The excavations are conducted by the University of Sydney on behalf of the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus. The project has received financial sponsorship from the AAIA (Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens) since 2009, and since 2011 has been the official excavation project of the Nicholson Museum.
