  • 7 - Linda R. Gosner – Alexander J. Smith. 2018. Landscape Use and Local Settlement at the Nuraghe S’Urachi (West-Central Sardinia): Results from the First Two Seasons of Site Survey (2014-2015). The nuraghe S’Urachi is a monumental stone tower complex that has served as regional center in the landscape of west-central Sardinia from the Bronze Age to the present day. The site was subject to investigations in the 1940s and 1980s, producing evidence of the construction of the towers as well as for later domestic occupation outside the tower walls in the Punic periods. In-vestigations of the site were re-initiated in 2013, when the Progetto S’Urachi (Brown University, Comune di San Vero Milis) began a collaborative research project aimed at understanding co-lonial encounters and daily life at the nuraghe in the Iron Age and Roman period. In conjunction with the Progetto S’Urachi, a multi-phase site survey was carried out consisting of a geophysical survey (2014), microtopographical survey (2014), intensive survey (2015), and a series of test trenches to confirm survey findings (2016-2017). The goal of the survey was to better understand settlement patterns and land use in the wider landscape surrounding the nuraghe. This article details the results of the first two seasons of site survey, which show that settlement extended far beyond the limits of the modern archaeological site boundaries and that the site was heavily occupied in the Punic and early Roman periods.

  • 6 - Giuseppe Romagnoli – Filippo Bozzo – Roberto Montagnetti – Giancarlo Pastura – Lavinia Piermartini – Annamaria Villari. 2018. Ferento medievale: le campagne di survey 2015 e 2016. Since 1994 University of Tuscia conducts archeological researches on the site of the roman and medieval city of Ferento, abandoned after the destruction by Viterbese in 1170-1172. The paper presents the first results of the survey conducted on the urban area in the 2015 and 2016 campaigns, in order to implement the digital archaeological mapping and to increase the knowledge on the topography and urban setting of a central section of the medieval city. This was obtained thanks to the integration of different non-intrusive research methods: topographic and aerial photography surveys, fieldwalking, radar analysis. PDFpermalinkRecord Sheet
