ABSTRACT

In this poster the author presents the results of a study on several pieces of ashlar masonry were recently discovered in a locale called S'Iscia 'e Su Puttu, indicating the likely presence of sacred place belonging to the Nuragic - Bronze and Early Iron Age - phase. It is located very close to the site of S'Adde 'e S'Ulumu, where an important hoard of bronze objects was found, once considered to belong to a single individual for the absence of any clear archaeological context. This hoard acquires a new dimension thanks to the new data presented here: it could have reasonably been part of a set of ritual activities carried out in a sacred area formed of buildings and spaces between them, a common pattern in Sardinian communities during the Early Iron phase.

This poster was presented at the Workshop Materiali e contesti dell'Età del Ferro sarda (Materials and contexts in the Sardinian Iron Age), organised by the University of Glasgow and the Comune di San Vero Milis on the 25th of May 2012, and supported for by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Comune di San Vero Milis, the University of Glasgow and the Carnegie Trust of the Universities of Scotland.
