The remains of Khirokitia and the archaeological finds from ongoing excavations that stretch back to the mid-1930's and which continue to date have shed a lot of light on the evolution of human society in Cyprus. The featured film also highlights important aspects of the life and traditions of the first inhabitants of Khirokitia. The event will also feature speakers who come from Khirokitia who will share personal stories about the discovery of the settlement and the ongoing excavations at the site.
