The fabric of the ancient theatre : excavation journals from Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean
The author combines her roles as artist, archaeologist and ethnographer to good effect in this collection of her journals written during her time working at the ancient theatre in Paphos and her travels around the east Mediterranean. In 1995 Diana Wood Conroy was appointed artist-in-residence at the Paphos excavation, something which was to inspire her subsequent travels to Anatolia, Macedonia and Alexandria. The journals are informal and personal in style, full of thoughts and reflection about life on a dig, and the life and culture surrounding her. `An imaginative journey through the evolution of the theatre that uncovers the complex and layered world of the Eastern Mediterranean, both ancient and modern' - from the jacket. Includes a selection of the author's own paintings and tapestries.
