The Department of Antiquities announces the organization of a workshop, in collaboration with the Anastasios G.

The workshop will include the presentation of the Management Plans of the afore-mentioned archaeological site and ecclesiastical monuments, as well as a presentation on the study and application of specialized lighting in the interior of the UNESCO churches on Troodos.
The studies for the creation of the Management Plans were promoted by the Department of Antiquities, as part of the strategies employed for the protection, preservation, and promotion of the archaeological heritage of Cyprus, and were funded by the European Commission, within the framework of the Structural Reform Support Service for Cyprus. The lectures will be delivered by Ms Jane Thompson, architect, and Ms Sarah Court, archaeologist. Both speakers have extensive experience on issues relating to the management of archaeological sites at an international level. It is noted that Ms Thompson is co-author of the book titled “Managing Cultural World Heritage”, published by UNESCO. The study and application of lighting in the interior of the churches that are part of UNESCO World Heritage, were funded by the Anastasios G. Leventis Foundation.
