ABSTRACT
The article discusses American contributions to the underwater exploration and marine archaeology around the island of Cyprus. The author states that this research has uncovered ancient shipwrecks, evidence for seaborne trade, and a network of coastal economic resources which established Cyprus as an important maritime center. The author explains that American research stands out because it provided insight into both ancient Cypriot seafaring and the island's coastal maritime land use. Several photographs are included.
