||Il Neolitico medio di Cuccuru is Arrius (Cabras, OR) nella struttura abitativa 422
|Data di pubblicazione:
||The Cuccuru is Arrius site at Cabras (central-western Sardinia) was excavated extensively during 1978-1980. This site is well-known due to the presence of a relatively well-preserved Middle Neolithic hypogean necropolis. To this chronological period are assigned as well some structures belonging to an open-air village which spread some hundred meters eastwards, on the top of a sand dune (cuccuru) that gives its name to the entire site. Among these structures only the one numbered 422 was almost entirely excavated at the end of the 1979-1980 fieldwork. This is a wide open-air hollow structure designed to serve as a common place shared by more families in order to perform specialized activities. This interpretation is suggested by the presence of a wide partly structured fireplace and by the results of the whole analysis of the plentiful faunal remains found inside it. Typo-technological analysis of lithics and pottery finds led us both to identify several functional categories of artifacts in the site and to place them in their specific position inside the Bonu Ighinu Culture evolution, in agreement with the results of radiocarbon dating.
