Samenvatting

Contrary to the idiosyncratic “tell-type” urban settlements which epitomize Late Bronze Age societies in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Near East, a handful of major urban settlements on Cyprus, such as Hala Sultan Tekke and Maroni, embodied a completely different notion of urban engineering. Instead of constructing dense urban city centres where a large number of residents resided close to each other, these “atypical” settlements were apparently organised with broad areas of open space in-between smaller occupational “clusters”. By means of archaeological survey combined with a landscape archaeological approach, the Hala Sultan Tekke Hinterland Survey Project (HST-HASP) aims to both (re)evaluate this unique type of spatial organisation at the Late Bronze Age settlement at Dromolaxia-Vyzakia, as well as to reconstruct the long-term multi-period lifecycle of the settlement and its surrounding landscape. The project is organised by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel with aims to investigate the immediate hinterland of the site as well as its relation and position within the broader Tremithos Valley region.
