Panico, Barbara (2017) Penisola del Sinis: fonti per paesaggi dell'archeologia rurale. Doctoral Thesis.
Abstract: The Sinis Peninsula: sources for the study of a rural archaeological landscape The study aims to analyze the diachronic transformations of the natural and anthropic landscapes in the Sinis Peninsula, locate in the Gulf of Oristano, Western Sardinia. The long study tradition related to the archaeology of the area has required a thorough review of the available literature. The fieldwork activities have focused on a series of systematic, intensive and extensive landscape surveys. The surveys have been developed prior to, during and following the author’s active participation to the excavation of the Mont’e Prama archaeological site. The data deriving from fieldwork and literature review have been implemented into a Geographical Information System (GIS), while the data elaborations have been used to analyze ancient settlements dynamics of the rural territory related to the city of Tharros. The study analyzes the reasons behind the intense ancient settlement in the area which slowly diminishes, almost ceasing, during the Early Middle Ages. Therefore, a specific attention has been given to the potential resources in the area, which need to be understood as potential factor of an economic relevance and active elements of the settlement dynamics. The collection of video-footages of oral histories accounting for the ancient life-style in the Sinis Peninsula has represented the conclusive action of the research, aiming to offer a useful tool for the reconstruction of the territorial layout in post-medieval times. It also offers a valuable tool for the promotion and public interpretation of the territory thanks to the storytelling approach.
