On the chipped stone assemblages at Klimonas and Shillourokambos and their links with the mainland

A.J. Ammerman & T. Davis (eds), Island Archaeology and the Origins of Seafaring in the Eastern Mediterranean, Eurasian Prehistory 10 (1-2) (2013): 177-186

Research conducted on Cyprus over the last twenty years had led to renewed interest in the first populations living on the island, and it has created a new framework for thinking about this and other related questions.

The transportation of mammals to Cyprus sheds light on early voyaging and boats in the Mediterranean Sea

A.J. Ammerman & T. Davis (eds), Island Archaeology and the Origins of Seafaring in the Eastern Mediterranean, Eurasian Prehistory 10 (1-2) (2013): 157-176

Our interest here is in studying the history of the relationships between human being and animals on islands for reconstructing prehistoric voyaging and boats.

Tracing the steps in the fieldwork at the sites of Aspros and Nissi Beach on Cyprus

A.J. Ammerman & T. Davis (eds), Island Archaeology and the Origins of Seafaring in the Eastern Mediterranean, Eurasian Prehistory 10 (1-2) (2013): 117-138

The chapter provides an overview on the fieldwork that was carried out over the course of seven years at two early sites, Aspros and Nissi Beach, on Cyprus. It begins with an account of the motivation for the study and then outlines the new approach that we took in the field in order to find the missing pre-Neolithic sites on the island.

Marine resources in the Early Neolithic of the Levant: their relevance to early seafaring

A.J. Ammerman & T. Davis (eds), Island Archaeology and the Origins of Seafaring in the Eastern Mediterranean, Eurasian Prehistory 10 (1-2) (2013): 83-98

Aquatic resources and especially molluscs and fish are encountered from the Lower Palaeolithic. In the Levant, shellfishing and the fishing of marine species began in the Early Natufian (ca. 15ka BP). Fish and mollusc exploitation before and during the Neolithic period, as proxies for interaction between humans and the marine environment, enhance our understanding of how and why Southwest Asian populations migrated to Cyprus.
