Cyprus and France maintain a long and active cooperation in archaeology. France has four archaeological missions in Cyprus. This contribution to the study of archeology and the history of the island, one of the richest cradles of civilization, is part of a fruitful cooperation with the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus. The excavations take place in Paphos, Amathonte, Kition and Klimonas. The main French partners are the French School of Athens, the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the University Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse. The publications from these works have an important international influence.
