Discovered in 1889, remnants were found for the first time in Sardinia with particular characteristics that led to being able to define the culture of Bonnanaro thanks to this prehistoric monument. The name of the cultural facies comes from the country of origin of the site and coincides with the early Bronze Age (1800-1600 BC), on the threshold of the Nuragic Age. The necropolis at Domus de Janas in Corona Moltana was excavated in a calcareous outcrop on the edge of a small plateau two kilometres from Bonnanaro, the centre of Meilogu-Logudoro 35 kilometres from Sassari, the history of which dates back millennia and which is famous for being the ‘village of cherries’. The ceramic artefacts of Bonnanaro no longer bear the over-abundant decoration that characterised the previous ‘Beaker culture’. The hypogeal sepulchres ‘lived’ from the late Neolithic period (3200-2800 BC), with the early Bronze Age being the last period in which they were used. In practice, the deceased ‘pre-Nuragic’ people were buried here for 1500 years.
