As part of the Connected Open Heritage project, a large number of images have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (see the content here). We believe that it might be easier to get them used if more people are aware of their existence. Below we list invitations to make use of the images, both a generalized version and specific ones for different collections.

Specific for Swedish Cyprus Expedition images

[edit]

Hi!

In February this year, about 600 images from the [[commons:Commons:Världskulturmuseerna|Swedish Mediterranean Museum]] were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. All of them depict the [[en:Swedish Cyprus Expedition|Swedish Cyprus Expedition]] from 1927 to 1931 (see the images [[commons:Category:Swedish_Cyprus_Expedition|here]]), where the archaeology of Cyprus was investigated by Swedish archaeologists. It would be wonderful if they came to be used on Greek Wikipedia, or anywhere else where Cyprus and its history is written about.

You find all of them [[commons:Category:Media contributed by SMVK 2017-02|in this category]] on Commons.

Examples of how they could be used:

  • [[el:Αμαθούντα|Αμαθούντα]], the excavation of the archaeological site: [[:File:Grav 2, dromos före öppnandet. Amathus. Agios Tychos - SMVK - C02973.tif|Grav 2, dromos före öppnandet. Amathus. Agios Tychos - SMVK - C02973.tif]]
  • [[el:Μάριο|Μάριο]], ancient kingdom, [[:File:Kameler på Nicosiavägen. Marion - SMVK - C01145.tif|Kameler på Nicosiavägen. Marion - SMVK - C01145.tif]], Camels on the road; [[:File:Musik utanför Svenska Institutet. Nicosia. Erik Sjöqvist och Alfred Westholm. exteriör - SMVK - C02541.tif|Musik utanför Svenska Institutet. Nicosia. Erik Sjöqvist och Alfred Westholm. exteriör - SMVK - C02541.tif]], excavation in progress.
  • Nicosia, outside the Swedish institute: [[:File:Musik utanför Svenska Institutet. Nicosia. Erik Sjöqvist och Alfred Westholm. exteriör - SMVK - C02541.tif|Musik utanför Svenska Institutet. Nicosia. Erik Sjöqvist och Alfred Westholm. exteriör - SMVK - C02541.tif]].

Kindly,
