Goshi artefact 1: I found this one, lost shoe, a discarded sandal, in the destroyed village. Hopefully, it was lost by one of the farmer's children, or one of their friends; but it may not have been.

Discussing the archaeology of ethnically cleansed places, another international archaeologist (not working in Cyprus) told me,
[I found] discarded shoes and clothing mixed in with spent bullet shell casings... lying in the courtyard under the collapsed remains of the house. I can only imagine what sordid little scenario took place there.
But getting stronger circumstantial evidence, or conclusive proof, would require further research.
