About this activity
The nuragic complex of Palmavera is composed of blocks of limestone and sandstone and consists of a central body with two towers, a rampart and a village of about fifty huts. The village was built during three phases and the oldest structures date back to the 15th century BC.
The part of the village that is visible today is only a quarter of its entirety at the time of the Bronze Age, in fact the original huts of the village are about two hundred. Among the most interesting elements of this site, we must first name the meeting hut, which is the largest of the whole complex with a political-religious role. Inside there is a model of nuraghe and a unicum of the Nuragic civilization, or the cylindrical seat-throne in sandstone. The Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju is one of the most important archaeological sites in Sardinia since it has one of the largest and oldest complex of artificial caves, used by different cultures from 4200 to 1800 BC. about. Discovered casually in 1903 and explored in subsequent excavation campaigns until 1967, the necropolis includes 38 domus de janas located near a stream, the Rio Filibertu. The rock, limestone sandstone, facilitated the excavation of the tombs, by means of rudimentary lithic picks, but limited its regular development especially in height. These tombs are of two types:
• in the cockpit (older) with irregular floor plans;
• corridors (more recent) normally arranged in T or in a radial pattern.
