The Rantidi Forest Excavations, under the direction of Dr. Georgia Bonny Bazemore, is a multi-site, diachronic, areal examination of a discrete geographic unit, the elevated plain of Kapsalia and the associated foothills of the Troodos Mountains.  Collectively, today, this is known as the Rantidi Forest.  The Rantidi Forest Excavations began in 1996 with the mandate to survey this area in preparation for the construction of the Aphrodite Hills resort and Golf Club.  Although accessed by an isolated track today, we have determined that the road into and through the Kapsalia plain constituted the main east-west thoroughfare from the beginning of Cypriote history until the use of dynamite in the early 20th century created the coastal road used today.
