The aim of this work was to investigate the Roman-phase sites and archaeological remains in the area of Siniscola, on the coast of north-eastern Sardinia.
Based on a literature review of the evidence, the author carried out a series of surveys on 35 archaeological sites, from the summer of 2008 to the spring of 2009, to verify their actual existence and the presence of scattered finds belonging to the Roman period on the ground. Such archaeological materials - essentially pottery - were then collected and analysed to obtain a valid dating for every site.
The most important general conclusion of the work is that the region of Siniscola is featured by a relevant continuity of occupation, for most of the settlements belonging to the Roman phase were located on former prehistoric sites, both nuraghi and settlements.
