Domus de Janas

By admin | June 30, 2017 | Posted in: Uncategorised

Domus de Janas are a type of pre-historic chamber tombs found in the Mediterranean area, but typically in Sardinia. They consist of several chambers quarried out by the Ozieri and Beaker cultures, resembling houses in their layout. Built between 3400 and 2700 BC, more than 1000 of the rock-cut tombs are known on the island. They date to the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age. A necropolis of them at the site of Anghelu Ruju, near Alghero, consists of 38 tombs some carved with bulls’ heads.
