Summary
"This book is a comprehensive panorama of the two periods of Cypriote archaeology-the Late Bronze Age (ca. 1600-1150 B.C.) and the Geometric and Archaic periods (ca. 1050-500 B.C.)--that have been in the spotlight as a result of the renewed interest in the study of Phoenician civilization and the Phoenician expansion to the west, in which Cyprus played a leading role. The periods covered in this book are of supreme importance in the development of the ancient civilization of Cyprus, and special attention is paid to the interconnections in the Mediterranean in order to explain the phenomena of Cypriote culture."--Amazon
