Cyprus: Island of Copper
Museums Sheffield cares for a collection of around 250 archaeological objects from Cyprus. The island’s position along travel routes between Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and other countries has given it strategic significance and a rich culture for thousands of years.
This display explores the fascinating archaeology of the island, showcasing nearly 70 ancient Cypriot artefacts. We worked with members of the Sheffield and the Peak District Young Archaeologists’ Clubs to develop the display and their comments and drawings inspired by the objects are on show.
