Early Bronze Age (2500/2300 - 1900BC)

This new era was introduced by people from Anatolia who came to Cyprus because of disturbances in Asia Minor.

As the newcomers knew how to work with copper they soon moved to the so-called copper belt of the island, that is the foothills of the Troodos mountains. This movement reflects the increased interest in the raw material that was going to be so closely connected with Cyprus for several centuries afterwards.
