Bibliography on the map of Nuraghi 2

Notes on the bibliographic references

ad Cannas 1989: the source consists of a map of archaeological sites with 67 nuraghi. Even if the nuraghe is completely destroyed and no traces are left the position has been added to the list.
ad Foddai 2010: A scientific study of the archaeological sites of the territory of Giave with detailed descriptions.
ad Foschi Nieddu 1988: The position of a number of nuraghi is not clear from the descriptions and the map, therefore these are not included in the list for now.
ad Galli 1991a: Six nuraghi are mentioned in the text (Funtana, di Monte Lisiri, Badde Tanchis, Sa Domu ‘e s’Orku, Chisti e Fradres) of which only three are retrievable on the maps.
ad Ledda 1989: Ledda describes in his book the archaeological sites of Villputzu, however not all known sites are described by him. A number of nuraghi is not mentioned. Ledda also has other definitions for nuraghe, protonuraghe and pseudonuraghe.
ad Lilliu 2005: In this book Lilliu describes 104 nuraghi.
ad Manca-Demurtas 1992: The nuraghe Corcove of Orotelli is not indicated on the maps
ad Manunza 1995: The following nuraghi indicated on the map of the IGM have been omitted from the list because these have not been identified as nuraghi. Toddeitto, Dorgali: According to Taramelli (p 31) a nuraghe, but according to Manunza 1995 (p 161) a perimeter wall confirmed by the PUC of Dorgali. Arvu, Dorgali: Arvu is a settlement with huts but without a proper nuraghe (Taramelli 1929, p 30, Manunza 1995, p 157, PUC Dorgali). Nostra Signora degli Angeli, Dorgali, there are no references in Manunza, Taramelli or on the map of the PUC of Dorgali. The sign on the map of the IGM could be either displaced or have another meaning.
ad Moravetti 1992: The map of nuraghi on page 6 and the list on page 7 have more nuraghi marked than the maps of IGM. I have chosen not to list the nuraghi that are not marked on the IGM maps, even though they have been added to Wikimapia. There is no verification possible these nuraghi still exist and are marked in the correct position.
ad Moravetti 1998 and Moravetti 2000: In the two volumes Moravetti describes a large number of archaeological sites of the historical regions Marghine and Planargia; Macomer, Bortigali, Birori, Borore, Bolotana, Silanus, Lei, Dualchi, Noragugume in volume 1 and Bosa, Suni, Sindia, Montresta, Modolo, Flussio, Tinnura, Sagama, Magomadas, Tresnuraghes in volume 2. The information has a lot of details and for every monument there is a bibliography. Thanks to the good information it was possible to find the correct nuraghi for a number of monuments described by Taramelli that were not indicated on the maps of the IGM.
ad Ortu 1993: Nuraghi that cannot be retraced on any maps are is Orrus, su Casteddu en Genna 'e Forru
ad Puddu 2013: On page 10, in note 6 at the bottom of the page, Puddu lists the nuraghi that are mentioned in literature but not found or no longer existing, it concerns these six nuraghi; Carassale, Codinas, Prochile 'e Campu, Sedda 'e Ortola, Rubiu, Zeracca Mamuda
ad Ricci 1990: The book contains the results of the research of the archaeological finds and sites in a number of municipalities of eastern Sardinian with detailed descriptions; Nurri, Orroli, Atzara, Sorgono, Teti, Bari Sardo, Cardedu, Girasole, Ilbono, Lanusei, Loceri, Lotzorai and Tortoli.
ad Taramelli 1929: A number of nuraghi are not indicated on the maps of the IGM because they no longer exist. I have followed the maps of the IGM. Only if other evidence exists I have added the nuraghe to the list. Taramelli made use of local correspondents that referred data to him and this resulted sometimes in duplication of data or inexact data.
ad Tore-Stiglitz 1987: on pages 99-101 a list is included of nuragic sites, with bibliographic references and on page 105 a map shows the position of the nuraghi. With the help of Wikimapia I could trace a few additional nuraghi, while for some there was not enough information to include them.
ad Usai 2003: Nuraghe sa Bastia is catagorized by Usai and by the PPR (No. 8611) as a (proto-) nuraghe but in the PUC of Aidomaggiore it is categorized as a nuragic wall (muraglia).
ad Usai 2014: Several structures mentioned by other archaeologists and the PPR as nuraghi are considered by Usai remains of huts or other structures. For this reason the following entries of the PPR are not added to the list; Monte Trigu (PPR No. 8365) and Cuccuru 'e Feurras (PPR No. 9247). For some entries the different interpretation of Usai is mentioned in the notes.
ad Van Dommelen 1998: Van Dommelen uses a number of sources. One of these is Badas (Badas, U., E. Atzeni, A. Comella & C. Lilliu 1988, Villanovaforru, in: G. Lilliu (ed.), L'Antiquarium Arborense e i civici musei della provincia di Cagliari 7-24, Milano) which contains a map of nuraghi without a reference list. Therefore many names on the maps have not been filled in because their exact location was not verifiable. A second source is the map of nuraghi of Guspini and it's territory (Carta Storica del territorio di Guspini, 1995). Many nuraghi have been mapped that are not indicated on the maps of the IGM. Because their exact geographical position was not known I added these nuraghi to the list using the PUC of Guspini.
