Choirokoitia

Choirokoitia (Greek: Χοιροκοιτία) is an archaeological site from the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B in Cyprus. The site is dated to 7000 BCE and has been on the Unesco World Heritage List since 1998. The settlement of Choirokoitia is located on the slope of a hill in the valley of the river Maroni towards the south coast of the island and about 6 km from the sea.

Next to the actual site, a reconstruction of the settlement was built entirely according to the Neolithic model with roundhouses in traditional materials from that period. The original flora was also replanted.
