Deriu, Daniela (2014) Le Produzioni ceramiche da fuoco tardoantiche altomedievali dai siti della Sardegna settentrionale: indagini morfologiche, cronologiche, archeometriche. Doctoral Thesis.
Beginning from the IV-V centuries AD, in the ceramic contexts of many sites of Western Mediterranean, appears the presence of handmade cooking wares. In the following centuries, above all between V and VI centuries, this presence is strengthened, up to monopolize the quantitative data of pottery reserved for cooking. Traditional archaeological studies, in absence of archaeometrical analysis, has interpreted this phenomenon as a return to local production, to the lack of imported production and the reorganization of the classical Mediterranean commercial network. The instability of the morphological classification of pottery production, has often determined the scarce scientific interest of it in the study of statigraphies. However, beginning from the comparison of research carried out on the sites of the Iberian peninsula, Africa, France, Italy and the islands of the Western Mediterranean, has emerged that some handmade cooking wares are recurrent in distant sites and separated by sea. Through archaeometrical analysis have been identified some fabrics, which are incompatible with the geology of the discovery site. The inclusion of Sardinia in this line of investigation was natural and not more postponed. It is because this pottery is very common in late antique phases, and because it was assumed a Sardinian origin for some of the fabrics identified in Mediterranean archaeological sites. This investigation has been organized toward a symbiotic study of published and unpublished results of pottery materials coming from the site of Turris Libisonis-Porto Torres (SS).
