Description

This chapter addresses the stratigraphic and architectural sequences of Nuragic sanctuaries and cultic contexts in general. A substantial part of the discussion focuses on the sanctuary of Monte S. Antonio, an unpublished context made available for this research. The evidence discussed in this chapter provides substantial new elements with respect to the current knowledge on Nuragic sanctuaries, suggesting that their construction was probably the result of a relatively fast, vastly synchronic process, involving the whole Sardinian territory around 950 BC and ultimately transforming its human landscape.
