This paper presents the results of a ground penetrating radar (GPR) prospection over the floor of the main room of the church of San Leonardo de Siete Fuentes, a rural medieval building in the countryside of Santu Lussurgiu, Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the GPR survey, the original shape of the preexisting religious building was found and reconstructed: it was a single hall church with a semicircular apse on the side opposite to the present façade that include the more ancient one. Moreover, two more locations inside the main room are indicated as points of potential archaeological interests, for the possible presence of burials or anyway manmade features just below the floor.

Abstract

This paper presents the results of a ground penetrating radar (GPR) prospection over the floor of the main room of the church of San Leonardo de Siete Fuentes, a rural medieval building in the countryside of Santu Lussurgiu, Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the GPR survey, the original shape of the preexisting religious building was found and reconstructed: it was a single hall church with a semicircular apse on the side opposite to the present façade that include the more ancient one. Moreover, two more locations inside the main room are indicated as points of potential archaeological interests, for the possible presence of burials or anyway manmade features just below the floor.
