This volume constitutes the proceedings of a conference held in Edinburgh in 1988. The 40 papers cover a wide range of subjects divided into six categories: settlement evidence, funerary evidence, religion, artefact evidence, trade and external influence and the emergence of social complexity. Poster summaries are also included. Chronologically the papers cover the long span from the earliest prehistoric period down to Classical times. Rather than following a strictly chronological approach, the thematic organization of the conference allowed speakers to take similar sets of information derived from widely different periods, and to juxtapose and assess the different interpretative methodologies used by the specialists. The overall scope of the conference and the large number of contributors are illustrative of the vitality of Cypriot archaeology today. Foreword by V. Karageorghis and Envoi by David Ridgway. Chronological table and subject index.
