The international archaeological community, following the scientific publications and publication of a book in English, bearing the signature of Mr Kanta and Vassos Karagiorgis, has turned its eyes to Cyprus, expecting further. This stunning archaeological find, along with other important Minoan, Mycenaean, etc., is considered by experts to be the premier discovery of at least fifty years in Cyprus. It is dated to the 12th century BC. and opens new scientific horizons not only for the knowledge of the culture of Cyprus, but for a more comprehensive and comprehensive view of the path of Mycenaean and Minoan civilization, that is, of the whole of ancient Greek tradition before the geometric period and the classical years.

The reaction of the Pyla Community Council to the unjustified delay:
The Community Council is dissatisfied with this situation of unjustified delay and want to meet with the relevant departments of the Government to end this situation.

The rich discoveries in Kokkinokremos:

Rich findings were found in Kokkinokremos, such as: bronze tools, miniature items made of gold, pottery samples and more.

Carved chamber tombs with rich burials were found in the southern area of Pyla.

The importance of completing these excavations:

If these excavations are finally completed and completed, it will greatly help Pyla, Larnaka and the whole of Cyprus.
