Kalavasos Tenta Neolithic Settlement

Location: Kalavasos village - Larnaca Distric - Cyprus
Tenta, the name of a lens-shaped hill that rises about 20 metres above the western side of Vasilikos Valley, lies about 2.5 kilometres from the village of Kalavasos. The earliest remains of human habitation at Tenta date back to the Aceramic Neolithic period (c. 7500 BC - c. 5200 BC). There appears to be a gap from the end of this period until the site was reoccupied in the Ceramic Neolithic period (c. 4500 BC).
