A 1.5 million euro investment by the government at four archaeological sites in Polis will help to protect them and make the area accessible to visitors, according to the local mayor.

“Forty years ago the University of Bristol excavated an area in Polis and uncovered a number of finds, but nothing has been done with it since then,” Polis mayor Giotis Papapchristofi, told the Sunday Mail.

“With the department of antiquities, the municipality of Polis Chrysochous will make it ‘visitable’. We will clean and protect it and people will be able to go and see what is there.”

The four separate areas, around 130,000m2 in total, are found near the hospital in the centre of Polis.

The plans include signs, lights and canopies and covers to protect the area, which will be connected.

The digs by a team from Bristol University in the UK took place in four separate areas and a number of remains were uncovered including the remains of two churches, Papschristofi said.
