Important step for EWU and Rantidi

Dr. Bazemore was invited to give a speech for the important cultural association of Kinyras, based in Paphos. The speech was about the wonderful and unique writing system of ancient Cyprus, of which Dr. Bazemore is the world expert. The speech was given in the Greek language. Dr. Bazemore is one of the few, if not the only, foreign archaeologist on the island who can lecture in the Greek language. The crowd was very appreciative of her efforts. The speech went off without a hitch bringing EWU front and center in Cyprus, and gaining the enthusiastic support of native Cypriotes.

Nationally Televised Speech

Dr. Georgia Bonny Bazemore consults her notes during the speech, given at the Cultural Center of the Bank of Cyprus. The entire team was a bit nervous when we saw television cameras being mounted in different parts of the room. We later found out that we made the national evening news on at least two news channels!! We are famous now!!! EWU continues to be front and center on the Cypriote archaeological scene. Go EWU!
