Summary (English)

  • May 2013 saw the start of the Isthmos project, run by the University of Cagliari in collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendency for Cagliari and Oristano and the Comune of Pula.
    The project, directed by Prof. S. Angiolillo and Prof. M. Giuman, saw a first phase of survey followed by excavation. The interventions were concentrated in a sector of the promontory situated just beyond the isthmus linking the Nora peninsula to the mainland. This is an area of almost 15000 m2 that was occupied for a long period by military personnel and recently passed into the public domain.
    The surface survey was accompanied by a geophysical survey.

    Based on the survey results it was decided to concentrate excavations in two areas denominated Alfa and Beta, situated in the southern part of the area under investigation. The first area revealed sections of wall belonging to a structure of unknown function, but contiguous with a pit containing a large quantity of pottery and choroplastic votives, perhaps linked to the abandonment of a sacred area. In area two, a stretch of road paved with large andesite blocks was uncovered, probably the continuation of road E-F that skirts the eastern side of the so-called Insula A.
