Vrysi (Catalkoy)

Vrysi is a settlement dating to the Neolithic Period. The excavations have revealed that the settlers of this region came to Cyprus from a district in Anatolia called Kilikya between 4000-3000 B.C.. The economy of the settlement was dependent on agriculture. The earthenware bowls are handmade.

The houses are connected to each other by narrow tunnels. The walls are made of stone and wet clay. The inner walls are plastered with wet clay. The roofs are made of reeds and covered with mud and wet clay. Rush mats were used on the floor. http://cyprusive.com/?page_id=816 http://cyprusive.com/?page_id=816Following the earthquake around the year 3000 B.C. the people of Vrysi abandoned this place and settled somewhere else.
