Cyprus Map
The island of Cyprus has seen people settle on its shores since 5800 BC. Egyptians, Persians and Romans have all used the island for either political or economical purposes, although the Greek influence had a much more profound effect. As a result, a guerrilla war began. In 1958, a Greek Cypriot nationalist leader by the name of Archbishop Markarios began calling for Cypriot independence which in turn resulted in the Turkish Cypriots calling for a divide between Greek and Turkish Cypriots.
