Skeates, Robin (2011) 'The Seulo caves project, Sardinia : a report on archaeological work undertaken in 2009 and 2010.', Cave and karst science., 38 (3). pp. 131-136.
This report introduces a new archaeological research project investigating the human uses of caves in the territory of Seulo, central Sardinia, and presents the preliminary results of archaeological field-survey, cave-survey, and excavation work undertaken in 2009 and 2010. At least nine caves were occupied in this area during prehistory, between the Middle Neolithic and the Bronze Age (c.4700-850 cal BC). All appear to have been used for the performance of rituals, and can be compared to the ritual use of caves identified elsewhere in the Central Mediterranean region. Nevertheless, significant differences can also be identified at each cave, adding detail and diversity to our understanding of the human uses of caves.
