Decision to digitally unify Cypriot findings of Swedish Archaeological Mission
The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, has announced that he has appointed KSF colonel Ejup Macedonci to the position of Minister of Defense.
Prime Minister Kurti announced in a post on Facebook that he has accepted the resignation of the current ministry, Armend Mehaj, which according to him was done because of family issues.
“Today, at the request of the Minister of Defense, Armend Mehaj, I accepted his resignation. The request for release from duty comes for the family. I thanked Minister Mehaj for his continuous work, impressive contribution, regular cooperation and his exemplary commitment from the first day of taking office. I appointed Ejup Macedonci as the new minister of defense, with whom we have cooperated so far in other functions”, wrote Kurti.
Recently, Maqedonci was an officer at the start of the large exercise “Defender Europe 23”.
Maqedonci, who has a long military experience, is also in the Kosovo Liberation Army.
Academics from Cyprus and Sweden have announced their intention to digitally reconnect the findings of the Swedish Archaeological Mission, which took place in Cyprus from 1927 to 1931.
According to a press release by the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), since the mission took place, half of the Cypriot archaeological finds are exhibited in Stockholm and the other half in Nicosia.
It adds that “the exciting proposal” for digital unification of the divided collection comes from the collaboration of Dr Marinos Ioannides, UNESCO Chair at CUT for the Digitization of Cultural Heritage with Dr Mina Silver, archaeologist from Sweden and Dr Kenneth Silver, Finnish archaeologist and historian, who works at the Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities in Stockholm (Medelhavsmuseet), where valuable Cypriot antiquities are exhibited.
According to the press release, the two Scandinavian academics were recently in Cyprus for an event organised by the Swedish embassy in collaboration with the Pierides Museum and the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation. After contacts between the two sides, CUT adds, it was decided that half of the findings exhibited in Stockholm and the other half exhibited in a hall of Cypriot antiquities at the Leventis Foundation, be reunited in the form of a single digital collection.
