The focus of the event was the commemoration of Joan Breton Connelly’s twenty-five years as Director of NYU’s Excavations at Yeronisis about which she splendidly lectured. Additionally, Professor Connelly premiered a thrilling video taken by a drone of this inspiring site followed by a reception featuring delicious Cypriot wines and food.
