Welcome to the website of the The Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environments (KAMBE) Project, an interdisciplinary investigation of the relationships between urban landscapes, social interaction, and social change on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age (or Late Cypriot period, c. 1650-1100 BCE). This collaborative effort brings together researchers from The University of British Columbia, the Department of Classics at Cornell University, and the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) at the University of Arkansas. Our work focuses on two important urban centers, Kalavasos-Ayios Dhimitrios and Maroni-Vournes/Tsaroukkas located in neighboring river valleys in south-central Cyprus.
On this website you’ll find information on the project’s background and objectives, our team members, the sites we’re studying, and the methods we use to investigate them. It also provides reports on our work, a listing of publications and presentations by project members, and links to the data that we’ve collected, which are available to interested researchers and members of the public for download. Thanks for visiting!
