We flew back into the UK early on Sunday morning and two days later I still haven't fully recovered from the exertions of our holiday or the lack of sleep incurred on the flight. I have however been able to sort through nearly a thousand photo's (!) and here is a very small selection of the wonderful history we explored.
|Probably not a good idea to wear a black t-shirt!!|
|Exploring the remains of a Byzantine-era fort in Paphos|
|4th Century BC coins in the Cyprus Antiquities Museum with the face of Alexander the Great on them|
|Lead slingshot dating from the Hellenistic period|
|Bronze Hellenistic Period helmet|
|Heading into another hole in the ground...lucky I had a torch!|
|18th Century firearms displayed in the Limassol Castle Museum|
|The Young Padawan was my trusty sidekick through many dusty adventures exploring the archaeology of the island|
|Down in the Tombs of the Kings (no actual kings were buried here...just very rich noblemen)|
|The spectacular amphitheatre of Kourion is not to be missed.|
Now that we are home I have several gaming projects to kick start back into life. Several packs of models arrived while we were away and I have a couple of games planned for the next few weeks. Back to my less than normal life!
