Landscape and Interaction: The Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project, Cyprus

Michael Given (University of Glasgow) will give the Council for British Research in the Levant AGM Lecture at the Institute on 11 December.

Dr Given's lecture entitled 'Landscape and Interaction: The Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project, Cyprus' follows the CBRL Annual General meeting which starts at 6.15pm. 

Abstract

The Troodos Mountain range in central Cyprus is a region of great physical and cultural diversity. The landscapes range from fertile, cultivated plains to narrow, dry valleys and forested mountain regions and this physical topography is overlain by a rich human cultural landscape of farming, mining, industry, settlement, burial and ritual behaviour. Over six field seasons, a team of specialists and fieldwalkers from the Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project (TAESP) investigated the northern edge of this region and explored the complex and dynamic relationship between landscape and people over 12,000 years. The results of their integrated and interpretative approach will be presented here. The lecture will be followed by the launch of a two volume final report on the project.

All are welcome to the AGM and lecture, which will be followed by a reception and book launch.

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Andrew Garrard.
