The Archaeology of Cyprus and the Wider Mediterranean: A Conference in Honour of A. Bernard Knapp

Over more than 40 years from the late 1970s to the present day, A. Bernard Knapp has become a key and defining voice in the scholarship on prehistoric Cyprus and the wider Mediterranean. He is the author, co-author, or editor of 24 books and numerous articles, book chapters and reviews, and is the co-editor of the leading Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology, which he founded in 1988. Notable as a scholar combining ancient Near Eastern textual expertise with a focus on the Bronze Age archaeology of Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean, starting with his Berkeley PhD dissertation of 1979, ‘A Re-examination of the Interpretation of Cypriote Material Culture in the MCII-LCI Period in the Light of Textual Data’, Knapp has ranged from an early focus especially on the Bronze Age and issues around Cypriot archaeometallurgy and trade, to take on the entire prehistory of Cyprus from earliest times (The Archaeology of Cyprus from Earliest Prehistory through the Bronze Age, 2013), as well as the wider history and archaeology of the prehistoric Mediterranean world, and a range of topics in archaeological theory. Most recently, Knapp has engaged with the maritime archaeology of the east Mediterranean in his 2018 volume: Seafaring and Seafarers in the Bronze Age Eastern Mediterranean. In between, he has also co-directed two leading archaeological survey projects on Cyprus, the Sydney Cyprus Survey Project (published 2003) and the Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project (published 2013).

We meet as appropriate in Nicosia, Cyprus, to celebrate Bernard Knapp’s extraordinary and productive career which has come to define many aspects of the prehistory of Cyprus and the Mediterranean. The workshop—entitled The Archaeology of Cyprus and the Wider Mediterranean: A Conference in Honour of A. Bernard Knapp—is organized by Sturt Manning (Cornell University) in collaboration with Vasiliki Kassianidou (Archaeological Research Unit, University of Cyprus) and Lindy Crewe (Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute). It will take place at the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus, 12 Gladstone Street, 1095 Nicosia, CYPRUS and is open to those who wish to attend.
