This contribution aims to present the interim results of an archaeological and archaeometric research on the cooking wares from thecentral quarter of Nora (Cagliari, Sardinia) where a team from the University of Milano identified several Late Roman residences.The morphological analysis of the different groups has put in evidence a low variation of the types except for their size. Thearchaeometrical data show that most of the analysed materials may correspond to a local or regional production (with certaindegree of variation) of cooking wares widely used in Nora in the Late Roman Period. It is important to stress that petrographicanalysis shows that the compositional characteristics of the non-plastics inclusions are compatible with the surrounding geology ofNora. This study of the LRCW from Nora is just a small part of a much broader analytical program on Sardinian Late RomanCooking Wares.
