Necropoli Li Muri

The necropolis of Li Muri is a valuable example of the prehistoric culture of Sardinia. Discovered in 1939, it dates back to the second half of the fourth century BC, and belongs to the Neolithic period.

Inside very original artifacts were found to have led researchers to think up the definition of “culture of the “circles of Arzachena” or ” Gallurian Culture”.

After an analysis of the architecture of the Necropolis and the observation of the grave goods discovered, scientists noticed remarkable similarities with other necropolis present in Corsica, in the Balkans, in the Pyrenees and in some Aegean islands, so to classify the complex Li Muri among the most important examples of the megalithic in Europe.

The grave goods found in Li Muri consist of bowls in steatite, hatchets in hard stone, knife blades, as well as several necklace beads, the latter also in green steatite.
