Abstract:Excavations at Nuraghe Santa Barbara, Bauladu, western Sardinia have filled gaps in the poorly documented history of bronze casting in ancient Sardinia. The western section of the 12th–8th century B.C. village surrounding this five-towered nuraghe has yielded clear signs of metallurgical activity. The technological assessment of these remains, based on elemental and microscopic analyses, is described.
