This report summarises the first field season of interdisciplinary field survey in the northern Troodos mountains in Cyprus. The overall objective of the project is to integrate intensive archaeological and geomorphological survey with a range of other analytical techniques, in order to understand the relationship between human activity and the environment. Particular focuses of the 2001 season included an area of Roman copper production and habitationthe mountainous Asinou area during the Medieval to Modern periodsand the fertile Karkotis Valley with its long history of cultivation and settlement. All areas were examined in the context of survey transects sampling the broader landscape at all periods.
