nuragic

Nuragic refers to the ancient civilization and culture that existed in the island of Sardinia, Italy, during the Nuragic Age (around 1800 to 238 BCE). The Nuragic people built distinctive megalithic structures called nuraghes, which are circular stone towers constructed with impressive precision and skill. These towers served various purposes, such as defensive fortifications, religious centers, and symbols of social status. The Nuragic civilization was characterized by its advanced metalworking skills, as evidenced by the remarkable bronze objects found in the region, including weapons, tools, and ornaments. The Nuragic society was organized into city-states, and their complex network of trade and exchange extended to various Mediterranean cultures. Despite their significant influence and achievements, much about the Nuragic people remains shrouded in mystery, as they left no written records. Today, the nuraghes and other archaeological remains offer valuable insights into this ancient culture and its contributions to the rich history of the Mediterranean region.
