PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Erimi Archaeological Project is conducted by the Italian team of the University of Torino, directed by Prof. Luca Bombardieri. The project aims at investigating the socio-cultural and economic developments of the prehistoric community of Erimi-Laonin tou Porakouduring Middle Bronze Age Cyprus (c. 1960-1650 BC). This represents a key-period of Cypriot prehistory to examine the passage from the village-based rural society of Early Bronze Age Cyprus to the urban society of Late Bronze Age Cyprus.  For this reason, the major aim of the research program at Erimi is to examine the antecedents of the island-wide urbanisation process of LC II-III, in order to possibly set this fundamental phenomenon within a wider chronological and cultural framework. To accomplish so, interdisciplinary and multi-scalar analyses are being applied to the examination of the study context. This scientific methodological approach permits to generate new networked data to the study of Cypriot Bronze Age societies.
