Prehistoric village “Sa Ruda”
on the shores of Cabras pond, close to the archaeological sites Is Arrius and Conca Illonis, Sa Ruda’s company hosts the life-size reconstruction of a prehistoric village, composed by fully furnished huts, common space for activities, animal fencing, cultivated fields...
" SA RUDA” PROJECT stands between experimental archaeology, ethnology and didactics. The initiative by Sa Ruda’s owners avails of the cooperation with a research team of the University of Sassari, leader in the experimental archaeology field. The contribution of artisans and senior citizens was really relevant because they have applied their abilities and knowledge towards the realization of traditional crafts and transmission of ancient activities that could otherwise get forgotten or lost: weaving on a vertical loom, binding of basket, preparation of mats, networks in linen, the characteristic lagoon boats. Children and adults can rediscover, through the activities of the village, the inventiveness and the creativity of our ancestors for their needs, which went from subsistence to spirituality. For us living at the time, high technology has deprived human being from the direct contact with raw materials this journey could be all the more interesting.
The formula of experimentation and the manual approach to materials is, without doubt, the more valid educational path, focused on learning those themes directly related to the prehistoric archaeology. School activities endeavor to show the entire productive cycles, from the supply of raw materials to the realization of manufactured products, to their utilization. The activities show through simulation of the archaeologic excavation the discovery of these artefacts.
It is also possible to add on a guided tour to the village, which was densely inhabited during the prehistoric period and which now forms part of “Sinis- Mal di Ventre” Marine Protected Area. The guided tours, led by Environmental Hiking Guides authorized by the Sardinian Region and specialized in Environmental Education. The activities will privilege the sensorial exploration and the ludic dimension, on research of a true contact with things and spaces where we daily live.
It have been called the land of the sun, because it’s difficult to imagine a more stunning sunset. In the Sinis peninsula you could admire a varied and enchanting landscape.
San Giovanni di Sinis with its emerald waters, the ancient Spanish tower that dominates two branches of the sea, the large expanses of white quartz moved by the water flows of Is Arutas and Mari Ermi’s beaches.From the top of Su Pranu plateau, during the springtime, it is possible to appreciate the infinite green expanse: the gold wheat that dominates the landscape. In the distance you can see Mal di Ventre island, granitic, superb, lying in the crystalline waters with solitary and uncontaminated
In the Sinis peninsula, you will discover an interesting and unique natural, fauna, archeological and cultural heritage.
The Giants of Mont’e Prama
In march1974, in the central-western Sardinia, in Mont’e Prama area near Cabras, just two kilometres from Mare Pontis pond, important nuragic sculptures have been discovered in a plowed field. The statues are carved out in chalky sandstone and their height changes from 2 to 2.5 metres. During the excavations carried out between 1975 and 1979, a total of 5178 fragments of the statues were found.
The Giganti (Giants) have been restored in the Center of Restoration and Conservation of cultural heritage of Li Punti in Sassari. Restorers and archaeologists have brought the Giganti back to life with careful and painstaking work that lasts four years; 28 statues have been recomposed: Archers, Warriors, Boxers. They have marked nose and eyebrows, big eyes composed by concentric circles to express power and magic.
In March 2014, a number of Giganti has returned at the National and Archaeological Museum of Cabras.
The Giganti date back between VII – X century BC as there is no evidence of Greek statues during
that period, the Giganti may well be the most ancient of the Mediterranean basin. This archaeological discovery is hugely important not just for Sardinia but for all the geographic area between Greece and the Atlantic. The Giganti of Mont’e Prama are the only gift offered to us by the nuragic world, and are currently exhibited at the Civic Museum of Cabras and at the National Archaeological Museum of Cagliari.
Sa Ruda farmhouse is located 2 km from the archaeological site of Mont’e Prama and 7 km from the Civic Museum of Cabras.
