Description

Nuragic sanctuaries gather hundreds of metal votives, whose significance embodies intertwined instances of “symbolism” and “economic value”. The organizational framework of votive offerings is derived from ethnographic observations and historical comparisons, and addressed through a quantitative approach, in order to identify major trends in depositional patterns.
