The mapping of Cyprus

September 25, 2015

Public Lecture at British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB

 

Ashley Baynton-Williams, a fourth generation map dealer, researcher and author will outline (and illustrate) the evolution of the mapping of Cyprus from late medieval times to the first years of the British period, describing the landmarks, the people and the events that shaped the mapping of the island over four centuries. Part of the research material presented has been funded by the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.

 

Organised in collaboration with The British Library European and American Collections under the auspices of the High Commissioner for the Republic of Cyprus, Euripides L. Evriviades.

CULTURAL SECTION CHC UK

 

The Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission promotes Cyprus History and Culture in the UK.

 

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
