This volume is an attempt to correct the imbalance in research created by exclusion of Northern Cyprus from the international scholarship over forty years. It aims for a balanced approach on two levels: the Turkish contributions are offset by contributions from scholars of foreign origins and the contributions of established scholars by those of promising young researchers who are publishing their first papers. The volume is arranged in three thematic sections. The first one looks at the archaeology of Cyprus from the Prehistoric to the Byzantine periods and includes analytical studies, sites and monuments, new excavation results, and research history. The second section covers the Medieval and Early Modern monuments of Northern Cyprus. And the third section consists of three papers on the protection and conservation of cultural heritage of Northern Cyprus. A total of twenty-six papers are accompanied by colour illustrations in 492 pp.
