Item description for The Late Roman Church at Maroni Petrera (None) by Sturt Manning, Andrew Manning & Hella Eckardt...
This book is a report on the survey work and salvage excavations undertaken at the Late Roman church of Maroni Petrera between 1990 and 1997. The church is located in the Lower Maroni Valley in southern Cyprus and was first established in the mid-5th century. The remains of this semi-bulldozed site were recorded, the wider area surveyed and the finds studied, as part of the work of the Maroni Valley Archaeological Survey Project. The report includes information about the survey work, the stratigraphic excavations and the finds, including ceramics, tiles (many with embossed decoration), worked stone and building materials, metal and glass fragments, coins, and other features such as burials and a cistern. A more general discussion of the development of the church, its role within the Maroni Valley, and comparisons with contemporary sites elsewhere on the island, is also included.
