THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE CASTLE OF THE HUNDRED CHAMBERS SEEMS TO HANG IN MID-AIR The Lusignan stronghold of Kantara, which dates back to the early 13th century, and some of it even to Byzantine times, crowns a precipice at the western end of the Karpas Peninsula. "Buffavento stands higher, and St. Hilarion can show more perfect ramparts and turrets, but neither recalls so strangely a forgotten age, neither seems to be so thickly peopled with its ghosts, as this lonely ruin on its pillar of rock." This is the view east along the ridge which forms the backbone of the peninsula. MAKING LITTLE ONES OUT OF BIG ONES Helene and her mother are breaking rocks to be used in connection with road work. Though the child's hands were horny with tasks which were suitable for men, a fine spirit speaks from her gentle face (see, also, text, page II, and Color Plates IV and VI).
