The Archaeology of Nuragic Sardinia is a comprehensive synthesis of evidence bearing on current understandings of Sardinian prehistory from the 23rd through 8th centuries BC. Within a culture-historical framework recent findings on chronology, settlement, subsistence, industries, trade, external relations and cult practices are treated within sucessive chronological periods from Early Bronze Age through Early Iron Age. Summary discussions address issues of interpretation with regard to what might be reasonably inferred about Nuragic social institutions, normative codes, even cognitive orientations. While the focus throughout is on the Sardinian record, due consideration is also paid to potentially related developments on the neighboring island of Corsica.
