In this work the author investigates the relationships between the Nuragic civilisation and Mediterranean peoples during the Iron Age phase. It is essentially a review and discussion of the archaeological knowledge on the matter, focusing on those archaeological sites, located both in Sardinia and across the entire Mediterranean area, which offer some evidence of interactions between Sardinians and other groups. Sites are discussed one by one, in two different catalogues, in chapters II and III - one for Sardinian and one for Mediterranean ones. The subsequent two chapters discuss the material evidence, formed of those artifacts which are proof of interactions and physical contacts between Mediterranean populations in this phase.
