Part 2 : Peoples of the sea

 

Chapter 7 : The Sardinian

 

Sardinia

Sardinia which is the country of Sardinian and Nuraghi , is a colony of the people of the sea , the Venetian

The Venetian conquered the island to include it in their international trade network from Anatolia to Scotland

 

Sardis

Sardis is a town of Anatolia , in Lydia , on the river Pactolus

The city is mentioned in The Persians by Aeschylus

Archaeological excavations prove its existence in the early Bronze , at about 3000 BC

Mentioned in the Bible among the seven churches of the Apocalypse , Sardis was the capital of the Lydian empire and one of the largest cities at this time

 

Lydia is one of the original peoples of the sea realms

Artemis , daughter of Zeus and sister of Apollo , was the goddess of the city

 

She was the goddess of the hunt , the moon and of fertility

 

Lydian is a language of Indo-European origin

The Lydian writing is Hittite cuneiform

 

The Sardinian

Everything proves that the Sardinian , mainly from Sardis , are a people of the sea , accompanying and supporting Venetian warrior in their exodus westward

 

While developing their territory in Sardinia , linking the Venetian network , they also settle in the province of Castello , North of the present province of Valencia

They will be driven out more or less peacefully with the expansion of Ligurian , an other people of the sea , who will built the Great Liguria

People who do not fuse with the Ligurian will then join their compatriots in Sardinia

 

Ancient Sardinia

The Sardinian Archaeological discoveries confirm us that the Sardinian are a Veneti ethnic groups , but also their alliance with the Kelt , now became Celtic

This card of archaeological finds attributed to the Beaker culture , virtually covers all European Venetian territories

 

The culture of Bonnanaro , named from the town of Bonnanaro in the province of Sassari , is considered by archaeologists as the regionalization of the Beaker culture in Sardinia

 

Bonnanaro culture , from the early second millennium BC , around 1800 to 1600 BC , is considered as the first step of the Nuragic civilization

The culture of Bonnanaro brings metallurgical and ceramic technology and an Indo-European language

 

Megaliths dating

Archaeological excavations dating performed on ALL levels in Sardinia sites , confirm the evolution of megalithic monuments :

– Approximately 3500 BC : Building of megaliths

– 2800 BC about : Reuses as religious site and beginning of recoveries mound for some monuments

– Approximately 1800 BC : Reuse in tombs and funerary monuments

 

The pre-Nuragic civilization

The civilization of Bonuighinu from -3730 to -3300 BC , is characterized by the appearance of Dee Madre , the mother goddess , with female deities represented by obese stone figurines

 

On that date the domus de Janas , artificial caves dug into the rock , will serve as tombs

They grow wheat and keep livestock

 

During the construction of a canal , the remains let discover a village dating from -3400 BC

The huts of this village were semi-buried

It also had many graves

 

Then during the Ozieri culture , from -3300 to -2480 BC , we can note a

sudden technical evolution

This period gives us a high quality of vases , ceramics , colorful decorative items and tools for hunting

 

The circular houses are grouped in villages , built of stone and placed on top of hills

They are no fortifications , which proves that people had no fear of enemies

 

This confirms the unit , despite the large number of different ethnic groups , and the government on all the northern territories of the Mediterranean by the Peoples of the Sea

 

Then the culture of Abealzu-Filigosa from -2480 to -1855 BC , is the beginning of the emergence of building to defend the villages and the manufacture of weapons

 

The Nuragic civilization

It seems that the nuragic languages ​​have similarities with Basque and Etruscan and belong to the Indo-European language system

 

Nuragic Culture begins around the 18th century BC

In Nuragic I , from the 18th to 16th century BC , we found corridor nuraghis

In Nuragic II , from the 17th to the 14th century BC , appear the tholos nuraghis , characterized by a truncated conical tower with one or more superposed rooms covered by a false ceiling

In Nuragic III , from the 14th to the 9th century BC , was discovered 3 to 5 towers connected by walls , being then fortresses

In the courtyard was a usually a well

 

Archaeologists agree to consider that the nuraghis were building both civilian and military , used for the storage of goods and their protection

 

It looks quite brochs in the Scottish areas …

There are brochs in Scotland

There are nuraghis in Sardinia

 

In fact , apart the names of these fortified towers we find in the Venetian territories , there is almost no difference , otherwise the local nature of building materials

 

Use and strategic locations are also similar

 

Nuraghe Technology

We found many bronze objects representing men and women , animals , boat models , nuraghis , fantastic creatures , miniature reproductions of everyday objects , and so on …

 

It was also revealed many finely decorated vases

 

So they perfectly mastered metallurgy and ceramics , of course accompanied by the necessary logistics for these activities

 

Nuraghe Population

Nuraghi were gathered in chiefdoms

The bronze statuettes often show tribal leaders who hold a stick , symbol of command
