Archaeological area of Scerì

Impressive granite outcrops shaped by nature are the home of prehistoric settlements that were intelligently adapted to a terrain made up of fissures. The Archaeological Area of Scerì attests to intense human habitation here from the Middle Neolithic Period (V Millenniu BC) up to the Late Bronze Age (Twelfth century BC). A Neolithioc domus de janas necropolis is laid out on terrain with large, isolated masses of rock, while a nuraghic village with stone dwellings lies along the slopes that leads to the majestic tower of Sceri nuraghe: from here one has a panoramic view of the Ogliastra territory that descends from the mountains towards the sea. These rocky ravines have yielded much Neolithic terra cotta and stone material connected to funerary functions contemporaneous with the creation of the Domus de Janas. Following the first digs, carried out in 1994, and a later one in the summer of 2003, scientific research on the site was resumed in 2007 with the aim of clarifying basic problems such as chronological-cultural dimension of the pre-nuraghic period and the architectural, social and economic aspects of nuraghic cultural.
