Since 2015 archaeologists from Leiden University and the University of Cyprus are excavating the Chalcolithic (Copper Age) site of Palloures, in Chlorakas, Cyprus.  On this website you can find all information related to the project and the team. Would you like to help out? We would love it if you would become our Friend!

Check out the documentary below that Leiden University students made about Palloures!
