Two Late Cypriot City Quarters at Hala Sultan Tekke.

The Söderberg Expedition 2010—2017.

by Peter M. Fischer & Theresa Bürge

The present volume deals with the results from eight seasons of excavations at Hala Sultan Tekke. This harbour town – one of the largest and most important in the Eastern Mediterranean – is situated near Larnaca on the south coast of Cyprus. Two city quarters dating to the end of the 13th and the first half of the 12th centuries BC were investigated. The material remains confirm far-reaching contacts and trade with numerous other cultures including the Mycenaean, Minoan, Egyptian and Levantine. Detailed studies on stratigraphy, pottery and small finds are presented. Special studies deal with metal production, animal and plant remains, geophysical prospection, radiocarbon and architectural reconstructions.
