Laura Pisanu

Hailing from Narbolia (Italy), Laura Pisanu completed her BA, MA, and Scuola di Specializzazione in Beni Archeologici (8 level in the European Qualification Framework) at the University of Cagliari before starting a PhD in Melbourne in 2021. Focusing on the Bronze and Iron Age, Laura’s thesis examines factors that might have influenced the human occupation of the southern Montiferru and northern Campidano area from the sixteenth to the six centuries BCE and the overseas connections between Nuragic Sardinia and the communities settled in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laura was awarded the Alma Hansen Scholarship, the Norman MacGeorge Scholarship, and the Jessie Webb Scholarship in 2022.
