The AHDR implemented a research project aiming at unveiling the historical memory of Nicosia through a series of graphically powerful and user-friendly online maps, which visually narrate the city’s transformation during the late 19th and 20th centuries.

The final outcome resulted in an interactive website ( made available to the public in January 2016. The overarching objective of the website was to showcase our common heritage by challenging one-dimensional representations of the past and offering an elaborate multi-perspective visual narrative of Nicosia’s urban and social life before and after the city’s division.

This publication was produced as part of the ‘Home for Cooperation’ Project funded by Norway Grants 2009–2014.
