From the introduction

On the 13th of December 2010, a small group of Early Iron Age specialists from Greece and Cyprus, who represent two generations of Greek scholars that have followed in the footsteps of Professor J. N. Coldstream, met at the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus to honor his memory. With this meeting, the University of Cyprus and especially the members of the Archaeological Research Unit, which in the last decade has become the base of the School of Cypriot Archaeology, wished to acknowledge a major debt owed to the late Professor Coldstream: in the 1990s, as chairman or member of many selection committees, Coldstream played a decisive role in electing the first professors of archaeology for the Department of History and Archaeology. This alone would have been reason enough to devote a Workshop in his memory. There was, however, a less obvious but more intimate purpose behind the meeting—which is reflected in, and should also explain, the choice of speakers—as we wished to pay tribute to aspects of his academic contribution that have had a long-termimpact on the archaeology of Cyprus and also on the careers of his Cypriot students. His productive and creative association with Cyprus, from where he regularly harvested a rich collection of data, which he would then share with his circle of ‘disciples’, fostered the opening of channels of communication and collaboration between Greek colleagues working in the Early Iron Age of Greece and Cyprus.
