S’Urachi Project in Sardinia (Italy)

This month (July 2013) has seen the start of a new fieldwork project in Sardinia at nuraghe S’Urachi on the central west coast of Sardinia. Undertaken jointly by the town of San Vero Milis and Brown University/the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, excavations have begun to explore Classical-period settlement around the prehistoric monument. The first campaign has brought to light Punic houses on one side and a series of activity areas and dumps on the other.

As the first campaign is drawing to a close, today, July 26, is the project Open Day and we hope to present our preliminary results to the many people who have followed both in the village and online – see www.facebook.com/scavisurachi.
