Reconstructing a Roundhouse in Kissonerga, Cyprus

Lindy Crewe, Archaeological Institute of America, 23/09/2010

Since reporting to the AIA in June 2010, we have made an impressive amount of progress towards the goal of building a replica of a Chalcolithic roundhouse within the roofed and fenced visitor area of the site of Kissonerga-Mosphilia near Paphos. The site was excavated by Professor Edgar Peltenburg of the University of Edinburgh from 1979–92 and is one of the largest and most important Chalcolithic settlements on the island, with preserved structures dating from around 4000–2400 BC. The impetus behind the project is to increase understanding and appreciation of Cypriot prehistory and to raise awareness of cultural heritage issues through employing tourism and educational tools to integrate the archaeology into an accessible narrative—the story of the communities of Kissonerga over the 10,000-year occupation span of the village.
