The Nuraghe Majori had a village around, where daily life took place. The stone huts had a roof usually made of trunks and branches; unfortunately the area hasn’t been affected yet by archeological excavations.
This construction is characterized by massive walls exploited only minimally,with smaller spaces within. This is the reason why they appear squatter compared to the elegance and monumentality of the tholos ones.
In this region, as well as in other parts of Sardinia, he Nuragic Civilization developed during the Middle Bronze Age (1600 b.C.) and it lasted until Carthaginians arrived, in VI century B.C. The word “Nuragic” comes from the most characteristic monument of Sardinia: the Nuraghe.
There are about 8000 Nuraghes, a
great number if we think that the isle is about 24000 Km2!
