Life and Land in Ancient Sardinia

Researchers:

What can archaeology tell us about the way ancient settlers used their land and how those interactions matter today?


Over the last three millennia, the island of Sardinia has been subject to many different cultural influences. The arrival of new settlers often fundamentally changed the local way of life and the ways in which indigenous peoples interacted with their land. Peter van Dommelen is exploring these influences from the perspective of archaeology, building a history of what was once everyday life and connecting these practices to the habits and culture of today's residents.
