Phase 2 – Surveying and Mapping

Phase 2 is the creation of a 3D “touristic” map and GIS survey of the village of Letymbou. There is currently no museum in Letymbou. The Open-Air Living Museum will follow the model developed by the Nova Scotia Community College and Centre for Geographic Science at Vimy Ridge in France.

There are 14 churches in the village. Their geo-location was performed by Dr. Antoine Hirsch and the Mayor of Letymbou.

Phase 2 will started in January 2020 with the collaboration of the Municipality of Letymbou, the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center (STARC) of The Cyprus Institute, the Nova Scotia Community College, the Centre of Geographic Sciences, and the Canadian Institute in Egypt.. It will use state-of-the-art equipment and labs made available by STARC. Phase 2 is part of the Euros 1.5 million grant allocated to the Municipality of Letymbou by the European Community.
