  • In the present work, the Authors present a discussion of the pottery typology and sequencing of the Nuragic Middle Bronze Age site of Conca 'e Sa Cresia - Siddi (South-central Sardinia, SU). The excavation of the site has documented a detailed stratigraphic sequence, which has been used as a basis for the pottery sequencing. Seven radiocarbon dates have provided a robust sample for the absolute dating of the site and ceramic phases. The data presented here makes Sa Conca 'e Sa Cresia one of the best documented MBA sites across the island, which has allowed for an in-depth rediscussion of already established pottery sequences and absolute dating of MBA Nuragic sites. This work provides therefore a new point of reference for future studies, and for the dating of well-known Nuragic architectures (archaic and classical nuraghi) in particular, while also allowing for a rediscussion of already published surface findings.
