Abstract

This paper explores social practices and the material world at Aredhiou Vouppes, a Late Bronze Age rural community in the Cypriot hinterland. In-depth analysis of the excavation results demonstrates that this site was more complex than current typologies of inland production centres, based mainly on survey data, would suggest. Instead it was multi-functional and played an important economic role within the wider Cypriot landscape. This paper explores the evidence for initial occupation at Aredhiou during MC III-LC I, but the main focus is on the substantial LC IIC remains. Through a detailed contextual analysis, and the identification of a multiplicity of activities practiced at the site, it examines social practice, gender relations and ritual performance within a small farming community.
