Ancient Building in Cyprus

Front Cover
BRILL - Architecture
1 Review
The wealth of excavation in Cyprus conducted across a period of nearly a century and a half has revealed much evidence of ancient building of all functional categories. This picture extends over a vast range of time (ca. 10,000 years) since Cyprus is probably the place where the earliest substantial building known, the Neolithic round house style is better presented than anywhere else in the world. It is the aim of this book to set forth and document the building tradition which hitherto has received no detailed exposition.The book will fill several gaps in the library shelves at one and the same time: architectural history that presents all the archaeological evidence.
