Film Description:Long-lived archaeological sites in Cyprus are rare; however, the rural site of Prastio Mesorotsos shows continuity that belies the general trend of frequent crises, hiatuses, and upheavals that are standard in the eastern Mediterranean. In this lecture, Dr. Andrew McCarthy, Director, Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI), discusses recent excavations at Prastio Mesorotsos and how CAARI has helped this project to link its ongoing investigations into the wider academic community.
