Book: Comparative Perspectives on Colonisation, Maritime Interaction and Cultural Integration
Chapter: 3. When the Romans Arrived in Sardinia: Three Case Studies -- Cornus, Olbia and Nora
Cristina Nervi shows in her archaeological analysis of the historically well-documented case of the Roman colonisation of Sardinia that inhabitants and newcomers adapted differently from area to area, giving rise to different ways of living together. Sardinia thus represents a multifaceted cultural situation, Punic and indigenous, where relations between the Romans and the Sardinian inhabitants must be considered individually in each particular context.
