Karmi Necropolis

CyprusCyprusIn the archaelogical excavations close to the Karmi village, tombs in the shape of rooms belonging to the Middle Bronze Age have been discovered. The human effigy in the corridors of one of these tombs, is the oldest effigy found in Cyprus so far. The effigy symbolizes the Goddess of Fertility.

Blue beads thought to have been gifts for the dead, and bowls belonging to the Minos civilisation brought from Crete were found in the graves. These things may have belonged to the sailors working on the ships in Lapithos. These show the level of commercial activities with the neighbouring countries in the Bronze age.
