in the 19th Century Nicosia

Welcome to Nicosia of the 19th century


The aim of the proposed study is to present a unique insight to the everyday life of the city of Nicosia; the study concerns both the socio- economic identity of its people and the spatial organization of its buildings within the walls of the city during the turn of the 19th century. The core of the information is drawn from the archives of the Land Registry Department in Nicosia and the first ever land survey conducted in the city and headed by Lord Kitchener in the 1880’s. These documents in their whole had not been researched or published before and are now in neglect.
