Situated at the crossroads of three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa – Cyprus’s unique geographic position has played an important part in its bitter past since antiquity. Cyprus’s Prehistoric Age inhabitants were joined 3,500 years ago by the Mycenaean Greeks, who inaugurated and demonstrated their civilization, thus permanently instilling the island’s Greek roots. Many other cultures followed thereafter, including Phoenicians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Romans, Franks, Venetians, Ottomans and British, who all left behind visible remnants of their passage, and have thus created a mosaic of distinct cultures and eras.
