Pressestimmen

'Priscilla Keswani's comprehensive survey of Cypriot Bronze Age mortuary practices is a welcome addition to the literature on the archaeology of the island. Supported by detailed analysis of of ethnographic data and superb manipulation of the raw data from the major Bronze Age tomb groups that have been excavated throughout the island, Keswani puts forward convincing arguments for the social, political, and economic changes underpinning funerary ritual on Cyprus during the Bronze Age. The book will be of great value to other scholars working in the field and to students of Cypriot and Near Eastern archaeology.' Louise Steel, Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research, February 2006, issue #341
