This study is the second of two volumes describing the history and development of the Akamas Peninsula in Northwestern Cyprus during the Roman and early-Byzantine period, based on studies carried out by the Danish Akamas Project during the years 1989-1994. The team of scholars designed an interdisciplinary study of a Roman province in the eastern part of the empire, emphasizing the late-Roman and early-Byzantine periods. The book takes up crucial issues surrounding the Danish excavation at Ayios Kononas, and also contains a section on the implications of the differing methods in archaeology and the reliability of using surveys for landscapes versus excavations for settlements. The scholars discuss the effect on this peripheral region of the large events which unfolded in the Eastern Mediterranean: the turbulent history of Cyprus, the rise of Christianity and the Arab invasions. Evidence from the architectural remains of four house complexes and the Christian basilica (c600 AD) is complemented by surveys in the adjacent landscape.
