The work

Neolithic Necropoles, alignments of Menhirs, 7000 Nuraghi, Megaron Temples, Sacred Wells, Giants´ Tombs. The millenary history of Sardinia expresses the essence of a land that has always been a crossroad of peoples and cultures at the centre of the Mediterranean sea. Who dare travelling beyond historical and cultural prejudices will feel a vibration arising from an archaic energy that still keeps together sites and places in a land of stone. Then and there the thousands of monuments will take you travelling through time. Inevitably questions will arise as: who were the peoples of Big Stones? Was the Sardinian megalithism linked to the Celtic and Breton ones? Were Nuraghi fortresses, temples or astronomy observatories? Who were those mysterious Giants? Where did Shardana people come from? Was Sardinia the Atlantis of Plato? A journey that is almost like ´catching the bull´. Maybe someone will find it, strolling among stones and pasturelands or under the layers of earth that the chaos of time has settled on this generous island. - THE GUIDE CONTAINS: a Chart of Archaeological Periods, 10 itineraries through the different areas of Sardinia, with a description of site´s features, directions on how to get there, and site accessibility; a glossary to understand the archaeology of Sardinia; a list of archaeological museums; a geographical map of Sardinia.
