The Cyprus Ancient Populations Project (CAPP) is a collaborative international research network for physical anthropologists, palaeopathologists and bioarchaeologists working on ancient Cypriot human remains. Its period coverage extends from the earliest prehistory to historical periods.
The Cyprus Ancient Populations Project (CAPP) aims to promote:
- Preparation of the Cyprus Human Skeletal Data Base (a research resource for physical anthropologists, palaeopathologists and bioarchaeologists).
- The first international symposium on human skeletal remains research in Cyprus, leading to the preparation of an up-to-date synthesis on ancient Cypriot populations
- Comparative, problem oriented, collaborative analyses of ancient Cypriot skeletal populations based on network participants' work at various sites.
- Training and placements for local/Cypriot students and researchers, with view of promoting excellence in physical anthropology, palaeopathology and bioarchaeology in Cyprus.
Further aspects, responsive to the network participants’ research vision, will be developed through network discussions.
