Early seafaring and the archaeology of submerged landscapes

A.J. Ammerman & T. Davis (eds), Island Archaeology and the Origins of Seafaring in the Eastern Mediterranean, Eurasian Prehistory 10 (1-2) (2013): 99-114

Sea level change has been a near-continuous accompaniment to human settlement in all coastal regions throughout the history of human existence on this planet, with sea levels persisting at levels at least 40–60 m below present for most of the time and sometimes dropping to more than twice this depth.

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.

Cyprus and the Aegean in the Early Iron Age. The Legacy of Nicolas Coldstream

Nicosia

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 honour his memory.

Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions. Volume 2: The Corpus

Oxford

This volume is the first comprehensive archaeological catalogue of all the extant inscriptions written in the un-deciphered syllabary of Late Bronze Age Cyprus (1500-1200 BC): the so-called Cypro-Minoan script.

An Archaeology of Land Ownership

New York & London

Within archaeological studies, land tenure has been mainly studied from the viewpoint of ownership. A host of studies has argued about land ownership on the basis of the simple co-existence of artefacts on the landscape; other studies have tended to extrapolate land ownership from more indirect means.

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.
