Polis-Chrysochous: City of Gold in Late Antique and Medieval Times
September 29, 2011 § Leave a comment
Busy week! But I do have something new for my dedicated readers to peruse. This is a working draft of an essay that will appear in the exhibit volume associated with an upcoming show at the Princeton University Museum called City of Gold: The Archeology of Polis Chrysochous, Cyprus.
The essay is a nice summary of the Late Antique and Medieval remains at the city and a short synthetic section that places the site of Polis (called Arsinoe in our period) into the context of the island and the Mediterranean.
It’s rough around the edges still, but I actually had a blast working with Amy Papalexandrou and finding an accessible way to describe the site.
