Medieval walls built atop an ancient theatre have been found in Nea Paphos, Cyprus.

Australian archaeologists have announced the end of their excavations in Nea Paphos uncovering more of the mediaeval walls built on top of an ancient theatre, and exploring a water fountain a stone’s throw away.

A team of 20 archaeologists and students from the University of Sydney opened up two trenches between October 1 and 28 at the site, which marks the spot which was once the capital of the island during the Roman and Hellenistic period.
