From the cover: The geographical position of Cyprus at the eastern end of the Mediterranean has always played a vital role in its history. As an island poised between the major civilisations of the ancient world with Mesopotamia, Assyria and Persia to the east, Anatolia to the north, Egypt to the south and Greece and Rome to the west Cyprus developed a unique and distinctive culture. From prehistoric times its art has displayed an originality and vitality that was to be its hallmark for some 9000 years.
This concise survey introduces the art and culture of ancient Cyprus from the time of the first human presence around 8800 bc to the end of the Roman period in the late fourth century ad. Fully revised and updated from the successful 1987 edition to include the latest archaeological discoveries, it is illustrated largely from the outstanding collections of Cypriot antiquities in the British Museum.
