Excerpt from Devia Cypria: Notes of an Archaeological Journey in Cyprus in 1888

In December, 1887, while holding a Craven Travelling Fellowship from the University of Oxford, I was commissioned with others by the Committee of the newly-formed Exploration Fund to conduct researches in Cyprus, by excavation and travel. As is now known to those interested in archaeological matters, we pursued the former method for several months at Leontari Vouno, Old Paphos and Amargetti, and results obtained from these several undertakings have been already published. But towards the end of May the heat and near approach of the wheat-harvest made it expedient to defer further excavations until the next autumn or winter, and my companions all left the island to return to Athens or England. We had made however no surface exploration of any considerable part of the island, and, being under no necessity to return to Oxford until October, I embraced the opportunity of carrying out a plan, formed some months previously, of exploring those districts of Cyprus which had been less frequently or less systematically examined by archaeologists, - to wit, the Papho district and the Carpass.
