Recent Developments in the Later Prehistory of Cyprus.

by Edgar J. Peltenburg

This review of the later prehistory of Cyprus, c. 5000-2500 B.C, emerged as a result of a series of lectures in Göteborg which Professor P. Åström kindly invited me to deliver. In those lectures, which were intended, like this Pocketbook, for non-specialists, certain aspects were selected for treatment: they were not designed to provide a synthesis of the period. The themes pursued here include the advances in our understanding of the prehistory since Gjerstad’s and Dikaios’ pioneering studies, specific results of recent work, illustrations of current research design which is attempting to go beyond constructions of chronology and typology and a discussion of the reasons for divisions, hopefully in the past between, prehistoric and bronze age studies. I am indebted to Professor Åström’s generous encouragement to Dr Watkins stimulating discussions of the beginnings of the bronze age and to the staff and students of the Klassiska institutionen Antikens kultur och samhällsliv whose interest in Cypriot studies made our meetings such a pleasurable experience.
