The volume focuses on the Coppa Nevigata settlement, located on the Apulian coasts of the Adriatic Sea. The work faces a reconstruction of the results of excavations and researches of the early twentieth century, the time when the site was discovered, and reports the news relating to these studies, as well as unpublished documents. The period in question ranges from the Bronze Age to the early Iron Age; the materials are presented through stratigraphic analyzes and classified on the basis of typology and age of belonging, allowing easy but analytical consultation of the catalogs. The interest in Coppa Nevigata is linked to its particularity in the context of protohistoric Puglia, even if only for its eccentric territorial position. In fact, the settlement appears to be referable to situations that are very different from the previous ones and, at least apparently, disconnected from a settlement model so clearly identifiable as that of the Ionian sites.
