Paphos Agora Project is a research project led by prof. Ewdoksie Papuci-Władykę of the Department of Classical Archeology of the Institute of Archeology of the Jagiellonian University. The research is conducted in cooperation with the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus and funded with grants from National Sience Centre, Poland.
The project is focused on introduction and improvement of modern techniques and research methods in archeology. It has an international and interdisciplinary character.
We cooperate with the University of Hamburg, the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, the Warsaw University of Technology, the Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce, the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and the Intercollegiate Institute of Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art.
Apart from conducting research, the project is also geared towards transferring knowledge. It allows participants to contact specialists from various fields of science. During the 10 years of operation, over 400 people took part in it. They were mostly students of the Institute of Archeology of the Jagiellonian University and other Polish universities taking part in field exercises, as well as volunteers from Poland and many countries: Cyprus, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the USA.
At the same time, the research results are also presented in a popularizing way, by organizing photo exhibitions in Poland and Cyprus, creating popular science publications and organizing artistic performances, interviews and information in the mass media.
