Ancient treasures of Cyprus go on display

A Ministry of Tourism and Environment drive to display the island’s rich past as a crossroads of history brought out artefacts for exhibitions in St Barnabas Museum last year which had been hidden from public view for years in government storerooms.

Plans for a new museum in Lefke were also unveiled.
