This is an open call to researchers and museum curators in the UK with an interest in Cypriot ancient history and archaeology, and cultural heritage to present their work in a one-day symposium that will take place at UCL Institute of Archaeology. The symposium 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, especially in Cyprus, are also welcome.
