Abstract

The Karkotis Valley Intensive Survey Zone has continuous artefactual evidence from six millennia, from the Chalcolithic to the Modern period (Plate 3.1; Table 3.1). Moreover, while some artefact concentrations are temporally and spatially localized, many parts of it feature pottery assemblages from multiple time periods. The primary and secondary distribution of artefacts must be interpreted in concert with three major, interrelated factors: the Karkotis River; the Morphou Bay area; and Skouriotissa mine. Not only has the river directly affected artefact distribution through incising and flooding, but these cyclical actions have also made the valley exceptionally fertile (Fig. 3.1).
