Nuragic remains recovered in Porto Torres
Police in Porto Torres (Sardinia, Italy) have recovered 71 ancient items inside private premises. The remains were recovered in two parts of the city and are ascribable to two distinct settlements. Nuragic remains (2000 BCE) include millstones, pestles and farming tools which would seem to prove the presence of a large organised settlement, and are seen to bear the scars of industrial farming; a fact which is at odds with the area's being subject to heritage listing which in theory bars farmers from using the land. The second batch of remains were the marble friezes of a imperial roman temple, coins and tombstones.
