This guidebook presents 44 graded walks spread across the island, covering both southern and northern Cyprus, with a slight focus on the central Troodos region. Clear description and mapping is presented for each route and a route summary table makes it easy to choose an appropriate walk. The walks, of 3 to 20km, range from gentle strolls to longer, more demanding routes, sometimes involving steep ascents, difficult terrain or navigational challenge. They showcase Cyprus's captivating landscapes, from the sun-kissed coastline lapped by clear turquoise waters to the pine-clad slopes of the Troodos and Besparmak Mountains. Many visit sites of historical interest - including UNESCO-listed Byzantine monasteries, Venetian bridges, defensive castles and hideouts from the 1950s independence struggle - and other highlights include the stunning Avakas Gorge, the caves of Cape Greco and the striking Besparmak range. As well as the walks, the guide offers plenty of information to help you organise and get the most out of your trip, with advice on transport, bases and border crossings. There's far more to Cyprus than just the bustling resorts: the favourable climate, attractive scenery and many kilometres of footpaths and nature trails make it an ideal destination for walkers.

Research on the earliest habitation of Cyprus has largely been limited to the finds from excavation at a few sites, or gazetteer-style lists compiled from earlier surveys and fortuitous finds. Generally, though, there was little interest in finding and researching small lithic scatters and resource areas that may be of importance in unravelling the patterns of prehistoric land use. This thesis looks specifically at archaeological evidence from two research projects, the Canadian Palaipaphos Survey Project (CPSP) in southwest Cyprus and the Idalion Survey Project (ISP) in the central Troodos foothills. I focus on the distribution of, and the relationship between, large habitation sites, small, enigmatic lithic scatters and lithic resource areas. I support this with a study of ethnographic research on modern land use behaviour, and ethnoarchaeological research on the modern dhoukani (threshing sledge) industry. This latter is especially important as it sheds light not only on the locations and quality of numerous chert sources in both study areas, but documents modern behaviour in lithic acquisition, production and distribution, which may be crucial for understanding how lithic craftsmen worked in the past. During the course of my survey work, it became apparent to me that observer bias had a profound effect on the identification, collection and interpretation of the archaeological data. A major part of this thesis focusses on ways to identify and correct for a number of these types of biases. Taking into account these limitations on the results from the surveys, my research suggests that the early Neolithic inhabitants were not optimizing costs in lithic raw material selection, but were intentionally exploiting distant sources, despite having excellent quality sources much closer to their habitation sites. Based on the ethnographic and ethnoarchaeological studies, I suggest that this was the result of intentional strategies of risk management.

Cyprus is not only famous for its cultural heritage and 9000 year old past – “Aphrodite‘s Island“ is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the eastern Mediterranean. The centre of the island is dominated by the Troodos mountain measuring some 2000 m in height, which despite its considerable altitude is more reminiscent of European low mountains, due to its softly rounded and forested peak. This Rother hiking guide proposes 50 routes mostly ranging from easy to medium level. Next to mountain tours, it also includes a selection of coastal paths along bizarre cliffs and adventurous ravine tours. Forest paths and nature trails lead through aromatic cedar woods, silent valleys and to remote Byzantine churches and monasteries. Classic spring tours are those which take visitors across the peninsula of Akamas, when colourful carpets of flowers and orchids blossoming by the wayside unveil their typical Mediterranean charm.

The John Muir Trail (JMT) is one of the world's most spectacular treks and is North America's best known mid-distance walking trail. It runs for 216 miles through the high Sierra Nevada mountains of California, from Yosemite Valley (El Capitan and Half-Dome) to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,496ft), the highest peak in the US outside Alaska. The route is described in 21 day stages. All you need to know to plan and prepare for your trip is contained within this guide, from obtaining trekking permits to buying trek food and forwarding food caches along the trail. Abundant advice is given on such topics as dealing with inquisitive bears, coping with altitude, negotiating river crossings, as well as tips on booking transport to and from the trailheads and on what equipment to take. In addition, there is a detailed description of the flora and fauna of this remarkable region. The walking trail, which is named after the great 19th-century Scottish naturalist, conservationist and writer John Muir, is entirely through the unspoilt wilderness of the American West and passes through three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Walking in Cyprus or exploring Cyprus by car is an experience to treasure for a lifetime - or, as the Cypriots put it, ?Once been, never forgotten.? You can stroll for miles along the southeast coast or hike through the woods in the famous Troodos Mountains (stopping for lunch at one of the trout farms). But in recent years most walkers are exploring the ?far west' - the Akamas Peninsula, now a nature reserve, where the Tourism Organisation has established some fine nature trails. (In all, there are 52 nature trails on the island, some short and easy, others very demanding.) This pocket-sized guide describes car tours, picnic places and walks all round the island. There is a fold-out touring map for motorists, which also highlights the various walking areas. For those without a car, there are timetables for local transport. 6 car tours (and accompanying touring map), 45 long and short walks (each illustrated with 1:50,000 topo map), 15 picnic suggestions. Plans of Lefkosia, Pafos, Larnaka, Lemesos, Agia Napa. Free online update service with specific route change information on Sunflower Books? website, maintained daily.

Bitter Lemons of Cyprus is Lawrence Durrell's unique account of his time in Cyprus, during the 1950s Enosis movement for freedom of the island from British colonial rule. Winner of the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, it is a document at once personal, poetic and subtly political - a masterly combination of travelogue, memoir and treatise. 'He writes as an artist, as well as a poet; he remembers colour and landscape and the nuances of peasant conversation . . . Eschewing politics, it says more about them than all our leading articles . . . In describing a political tragedy it often has great poetic beauty.' Kingsley Martin, New Statesman 'Durrell possesses exceptional qualifications. He speaks Greek fluently; he has a wide knowledge of modern Greek history, politics and literature; he has lived in continental Greece and has spent many years in other Greek islands . . . His account of this calamity is revelatory, moving and restrained. It is written in the sensitive and muscular prose of which he is so consummate a master.' Harold Nicolson, Observer
