The article that I have chosen is entitled “Earliest Known Village in Cyprus Discovered” from archaeologynetwork.blogspot.com published on Tuesday July Twelfth. The sight is believed to be from the 9th millennium BC. The sight has already provided many interesting finds such as evidence of domestic dogs and cats from when the sight was still populated. There is also evidence of an early wheat called emmer being cultivated. There have not been any ceramic pieces found as a majority of the artifacts are stone tools and jewelry from shells. Most importantly the sight shows that it was part of a larger classifications of developments called Near Eastern Neolithic.
I think this dig is an example of culture history. It is culture history because as the dig is examined we can find a picture of what the culture of this village was in the past by the details of their artifacts. I think that finding it similar to other developments could show a certain degree of trade or migration that would help us to understand a larger picture of the cultural environment of the Mediterranean. As excavations continue at this site the more we might discover more about the day to day lives of its inhabitants.
