The Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey project carried out interdisciplinary survey in a 160-sq km landscape in the northern Troodos Mountains of Cyprus, between 2000 and 2004. The central aim was to investigate the relationship between people and their environment, from the Neolithic period to the present day. This was done by employing a range of interdisciplinary techniques related to archaeological and geomorphological survey and mapping. In addition, the area's architecture, botany, and documentary and oral history was investigated, as well as the history of mining, metallurgy and agriculture in the region.
