Pyla-Koutsopetria I presents the results of an intensive pedestrian survey documenting the diachronic history of a 100 ha microregion along the southern coast of Cyprus. Located around 10 km from the ancient city of Kition, the ancient coastal settlements of the Koutsopetria mircoregion featured an Iron Age sanctuary, a Classical settlement, a Hellenistic fortification, a Late Roman town, and a Venetian-Ottoman coastal battery situated adjacent to a now infilled, natural harbour on Larnaka Bay. This publication integrates a comprehensive treatment of methods with a discussion of artefact distribution, a thorough catalogue of finds, and a diachronic history to shed light on one of the few undeveloped stretches of the Cypriot coast.

Illustrated in b&w with 137 illustrations and 56 tables.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume adds to [the authors'] already impressive engagements with the practice and impact of archaeological surveying (both in print and online), and is vital for anybody interested in diachronic landscapes, the practice of archaeological survey and the presentation of archaeological data. This is easily one of the most important books on survey to have been published in the past five years. Dan Stewart, University of Leicester, Antiquity, October 2015 This volume represents a significant contribution to the published survey data for Cyprus, and the authors' straightforward discussions of the region's material will form a critical and methodologically rigorous reference for those interested in the region or in island-wide trends. Pyla Koutsopetria Archaeological Project certainly fills a gap in our understandings of first-millennium CE landscapes for the eastern coastal areas of Cyprus. The in-depth discussions of sampling and grid strategies will also be a great resource for scholars and practitioners of Mediterranean survey more broadly. [...] PKAP places a lesser-known landscape in a prominent position and provides robust material for future investigations. Catherine Kearns, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2016.02.39
