Kurzfassung englisch:
In the course of the Swedish excavations at Hala Sultan Tekke, Cyprus, table ware and domestic pottery of
unknown provenance were discovered in offering pits dating to the 13th century BCE. These vessels comprise six
hand-made and black burnished vessels, all of which have close typological parallels in the Nuragic culture of
Sardinia. Comparative petrographic investigation confirmed their Sardinian provenance. Other archaeometric
analyses include FTIR on the Cypriot and Sardinian material, and NAA on the Sardinian vessels from Hala Sultan
Tekke. These vessels further extend the nature of intercultural relations of the site, which comprise a vast area
including the Aegean, Anatolia, the Levant and Egypt. The paper presents the archaeometric results and briefly
discusses their implication for Cypro-Sardinian connections in the Late Bronze Age
