Dating from the 7th to 4thMillennium, BC this ancient settlement provides a wonderful insight into the development of human society on Cyprus. Important highlights include well preserved circular mud houses, a complex architectural system, a good number of tools, decorations etc. The size of the dwellings suggest that the people who lived here must have been quite short, that they had short lifespans (35 years old), and that child mortality was quite high. The entire original population disappeared for reasons unknown during the 6th Millennium BC and the place remained deserted for almost 1500 years before the next civilisation, the Sotira moved in. A UNESCO World Heritage Site for its immense archaeological and scientific significance, this Neolithic settlement is a must visit for any ancient history buff.
