Abstract

The intense cultural and commercial contacts created by trans-Tyrrhenian trade between Sardinia and the coast of Etruria in the late protohistoric period of the Early Iron Age have long been known. These connections, which have been the subject of numerous analytical studies, can now be linked to the "epochal" discovery on the island of Tavolara, located at short distance from the coast of Gallura, revealed by the excavations of the years 2011 and 2013 on the promontory of Spalmatore di Terra. Here the investigations, still preliminary, have in fact demonstrated the presence of Villanovan materials of ordinary use, associated with a smaller quantity of finds of local manufacture, attributable to the 10th-9th c. BCE. This paper provides the excavation data, and examines both the context of the finds of the previous Bronze Age in the coastal territory of north-eastern Sardinia, and the allogenic finds from Tavolara. For these, after the recognition in 2018 of their relevance to navigation from the Etruscan coast, on the basis of the characteristics of the impasto, and typological and stylistic comparisons, archaeometric analysis allows us to trace a prevailing origin in Southern Etruria, although there is also a component from norther Etruria. For some of the indigenous, Sardinian materials, it has been possible to establish chronological attributions more precise than in the past, thanks to the correlation with materials of continental origin. A review of the Etruscan coastal anthropic landscape is also carried out in relation to the development of organized navigation, made possible by the new socio-economic structure of the communities at the birth of the proto-urban states.
