This collection of papers presents the symposium held at the Getty Museum in February 1990. Recent archaeological excavations provide evidence that Cyprus had great cultural and economic importance during the bronze age. The contributors discuss aspects of the bronze age as they relate to Cyprus and to the eastern Mediterranean. Topics include the economy of the period, its basis in the exploitation of metals and stone, Cyprus's international influence on trade and religion, and evidence of that influence through interpretation of archaeological sites and artifacts.
