The Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project (PKAP) is an archaeological survey and excavation of Iron Age, Hellenistic, and Roman sites near the modern village of Pyla, Cyprus. The survey area is located along the southern coast of Cyprus to the east of the city of Larnaka. We conducted a pedestrian survey of the area between 2003 and 2009, geophysical prospection in 2007 and 2009, and small-scale excavations at Hellenistic Vigla and Late Roman Koutsopetria in 2008, 2009, and 2012. We are currently in publication phase and are planning a study season for 2013.
Our goal with this blog is to publicize our most recent work for those who have supported our work as well as others with an interest in our project. In addition to the final season reports, we have also made available copies of some of our most recent public presentations.
