The representative samples of pottery, chipped stone and other artefacts brought back from survey units and POSIs were all studied by the relevant specialists and the results entered into the database and GIS for further analysis. For the pottery, this involved a basic description of fabric, form, and decoration and the assignation of a 'chronotype', a code which links pottery types to specific chronological periods. 29,234 sherds were analysed in this fashion. Of these, 555 sherds were selected for photography, drawing and detailed description of fabric. A fully representative sample of these is published in the final monograph.
Archaeometallurgical materials such as slag, furnace conglomerate, ores, flux, furnace lining and tuyéres were collected and recorded at an equivalent level of detail, and 48 slag samples were analysed using XRF.
All artefacts have been deposited with the Department of Antiquities, Republic of Cyprus. All the artefact data have been placed on our Digital Archive.
