Summary (English)

  • The University of Cagliari’s research in the ex military base at Nora began in 2013 and continued in 2014 with further investigation of two features identified in the previous year: a stretch of basalt road, the natural continuation of the road running to the east of the so-called ‘Insula A’, and part of a building with several occupation phases.

    This season’s work furthered the investigation of the south-eastern sector of the excavation area situated on the highest part of the site (Area Alfa). Here, walls belonging to a large rectangular building were exposed. The remains of a small channel and a pit probably relating to a small craft-working structure datable to the late antique phase were also identified. Important evidence was also found to the west of this sector (Area Delta) where the layers of collapse (to be investigated) seemed to indicate the presence of a residential area of the Roman city. Particular attention was paid to the sector east of the road E-F (Areas Beta and Gamma), where a trench from a previous excavation, in the period when this was still a military base, was intercepted.
