FORTIFIED SITE (MIDDLE BRONZE AGE)

KRINI

 38
Town / Village : Krini /Pinarbasi

District : Kyrenia

 

DESCRIPTION :

It was during the Middle Bronze Age that a few fortified sites appeared in Cyprus. Some of them might have had an agricultural purpose, as stock enclosures. There is one at Krini on the lower slopes of the southern side of the Kyrenia mountains, its vulnerable northern side is blocked by a curtain wall of massive stones, while on the south there is a sheer drop.

People see forts as evidence for internal strife on the island ; unrest is implicit in the number of weapons found buried in graves.

Period :  Middle Bronze age
