The Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project has conducted two full seasons (2001, 2002) of interdisciplinary field survey in Cyprus. Our overall objective is to understand better the relationship between human activity and the total natural and social environment in this insular setting. We do this through fully integrated, intensive archaeological and geomorphological survey, utilising a range of other analytical techniques and approaches (geobotany, satellite imagery, GIS/Geographic Information Systems, archaeometallurgy, geophysical survey, etc.). This paper reports on some very specific results of the first two seasons’ fieldwork, at the same time outlining our methodology and approach to regional survey archaeology. In particular, we consider the results of our fieldwork in and around the village of Katydhata, especially as they affect our understanding of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlement and mortuary patterning in the prehistoric and early historic Cypriot landscape.
