A Mischievous Pastime. Digging in Cyprus in the Nineteenth Century

The folio that complemented the exhibition entitled “Aphrodite’s Island. Art and Archaeology of Ancient Cyprus”, held in April 1988 at the National Museum of Scotland. It was published by the Museum in cooperation with the Cultural Foundation. The first part is a survey of the first European collectors and the precursors of scientific archaeology, with photographs from the John Thomson archive (1878). The second part is the illustrated catalogue of all the exhibits, brought together from various public collections in Scotland, dating from the Neolithic to the Hellenistic Period.
