Fieldwork Opportunity: Gruttiacqua and the Canai-plain of Sant’Antioco/Sardinia

Since 2017, the field project, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Constance von Rüden, is investigating the prehistoric settlement system of the Canai-plain on Sant’Antioco. The islet of Sant’Antioco is situated in the southwest of Sardinia and offers, especially in the southern part around the Canai-plain, an astonishing density of prehistoric and nuragic structures.

The research project is also designed as a teaching excavation, enabling students to document the remains of the so-called nuraghi and other associated structures in and around the Canai-plain and thus learn first practical skills for their future independent research.
