Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju

Local nameNecropoli di Anghelu Ruju
LocationSardinia, Italy

The necropolis of Anghelu Ruju is an archaeological site located in the town of Alghero, Province of Sassari, Sardinia. This is the largest necropolis of pre-Nuragic Sardinia.

The necropolis was discovered accidentally in 1903 during the excavations for the construction of a farmhouse, in the winery of Sella&Mosca. In that occasion were found a human skull and a tripod vessel. Following these discoveries, the archaeologist Antonio Taramelli effected, the following year, the first excavations of the site. In total were discovered 38 domus de janas.

Within the many chambers are numerous finds of grave goods, which allow us to date the necropolis to the Late Neolithic and they attest its use even in the Copper and the early Bronze Age, between 2800 and 1600 BC,.
