"A balanced, readable, and well-illustrated volume with wide appeal. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice
With one of the richest archaeological records and most complicated histories in the Mediterranean, Sardinia provides an important laboratory for studying the interaction of indigenous societies and outside forces in a partly isolated geographical context. Stephen L. Dyson and Robert J. Rowland, Jr. use both material culture and written documents to reconstruct the social and economic processes of an island society that showed both cultural creativity and continuity but responded to invasions from the Phoenicians through the Romans to the Aragonese.

This first accessible reconstruction of island archaeology provides a balanced picture of the sweep of Sardinian history.

Stephen L. Dyson is Professor of Classics at the State University of New York at Buffalo and author of Ancient Marbles to American Shores: Classical Archaeology in the United States, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press. Robert J. Rowland, Jr., was Professor of History at Loyola University-New Orleans.
