On Colonial Grounds
Dommelen, P. van
The complete title reads: On Colonial Grounds, A comparative study of colonialism and rural settlement in first millenium BC west central Sardinia. Based on the Riu Mannu survey carried out in west central Sardinia since 1992 and much of the literature published on the wider region of west Sardinië, including previous surveys and excavations, in this book Peter van Dommelen examines the archaeological and historical record of the three phases of colonialism; the phoenician presence, the punic domination and the roman occupation. The results of the study show the relationships between indigenous elements originating from the previous nuragic bronze and iron age, and the newcomers that settled on the coasts, in the phoenician-punic towns and in the rural environment of Terralba and the Marmilla. What emerges are the nuances of and the refined insight in the colonial situation of Sardinia which makes this study a most valuable contribution to Sardinian (pre-)history, one that should be read by all students of the archaeology of the island.

Insulae Sardiniae et Corsicae
In Insulae Sardiniae et Corsicae, le isole minori della Sardegna e della Corsica nell'antichità Raimondo Zucca traces the smaller islands around Sardinia and Corsica back in the ancient and medieval sources where these were mentioned. Using the sources and comparing them with the archaeological evidence the author gives a rather surprisingly interesting picture of these minor islands and their use. Particularly of interest are the passages from the medieval nautical manuscripts that were used to describe the navigation in the western mediterranean.
