Abstract: Intensive site survey in the Paphos District of western Cyprus indicates considerable variation in preferred settlement locus from the early Neolithic period to modern times. Settlement data for each major chronological period are summarized and related to factors of topography, elevation, available water, lithic sources, access to arable land, and potential for defence. Included is a discussion of Neolithic stone tool technology within the survey area.
