Archeologists in the Karpass Peninsular (Karpaz) have made important findings, uncovering artefacts they believe could be as much as 6,000 years old, the oldest uncovered until now.
According to a report in the Turkish Cypriot newspaper Kibris, the findings were made at the ‘Vasilia’ hill site in Galinoporni (Kaleburnu) by a 36-man team from the Eastern Mediterranean University’s Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Research Center (AKVAM).

The findings, which include an intact clay vessel and metal tool as well as pieces of other objects will be put on display at a museum that will be constructed nearby.
The Vasilia site, meanwhile, was also in 2014 the location of one of the most significant Bronze Age findings in Cyprus, something the Eastern Mediterranean area is particularly known for.
