This sumptuous publication of the archaeological excavation in northwest Cyprus (1971–1973) is sponsored by Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The authors present the site, its objects, and its chronological and historical significance against the wider background of Cypriote archaeology, casting new light on the problems of Cypriote pottery classification and the links between Cyprus and the Aegean world, especially Crete. Descriptions of the Mound and Tombs and the catalogues of their contents are supplemented by essays on individual classes of objects.

The book is lavishly illustrated with detailed diagrams and nearly 2,000 photographs and drawings to help the reader understand this active industrial area and its changes through successive generations from the Middle Bronze Age to the Iron Age. An appendix of technical analyses, an inventory of the finds, a list of published references to the excavation, and a bibliography complete the documentation.
