Late Bronze Age items found in Cyprus

26 bronze items were found buried in an earthenware jar in a rocky hill near the Galinoporni village, in the Karpass Peninsula (Cyprus). The items are 3200 years old, and are dated in the late Bronze Age. The excavations were conducted by the Famagusta branch of the Department of the Antiquities and Museum. Among the 26 items which were found, were two well preserved censers, one shovel for coals, of which only a few pieces are known to exist in Cyprus and the Middle East, a closed jug with a handle, five pieces of hook and three large bronze kettles. Similar items were found in 1970 near the Sinta Village. These items are now in the Saint Varnavas Museum.
