Abstract

The Athienou Archaeological Project has been carrying out excavation, survey and a wide range of analytical and community engagement activities in the Malloura Valley in central Cyprus since 1990. This engaging and very readable book provides detailed summaries and preliminary analyses of all of this very varied work. Because each chapter gives a careful explanation of the period background, the Cypriot context and the history of research, the book as a whole serves as an up-to-date and wide-ranging introduction to the archaeology of Cyprus, which links the broader picture to a close engagement with a specific landscape.
