The excavations on Akamas provide a comprehensive survey of human activity on the peninsula in western Cyprus between 100 BC to 600 AD, with an emphasis on Akamas as a Roman province in the eastern part of the empire. Volume I provides a general introduction to the excavation and discusses literary evidence concerning the area and cartographic sources. Volume II focusses on the site of Ayios Kononas and the effect on this peripheral region of the large events which unfolded in the eastern Mediterranean. Special emphasis is placed on fine and imported ceramic wares in comparison to those produced locally and the importance of roof tiles as archaeological evidence.
