Nephilim Giants Graves Of Sardinia


The Giant graves in Sardinia. Giants’ tomb, is the name given by local people and archaeologists to a type of Sardinian megalithic gallery grave, built during the Bronze Age by the Nuragic civilization. They were collective tombs and can be found throughout Sardinia, with 800 being discovered there. A stone cairn lies over the burial chambers, with some examples having a cup shaped entrance similar to the court cairn tombs of Ireland. There are two general types of giants tomb. In the so-called “slab type” uncut slabs are buried on end in the ground, and are arranged side by side. There is usually a central stele, which is the largest slab (up to 4 m in height) and has a doorway cut through it. In the more primitive slab-type giants tombs the central slab is unmodified aside from the entrance that is cut through it, at the base, or else there is a crude dolmen-like arrangement, of 3 uncut rocks to form the entrance (Osono, Sortali, Lolghi, Pescaredda). In more advanced slab-type giants tombs the central slab is modified so as to be rounded on top, and has a simple design carved into the front surface
The sepulchres have a characteristic rectangular plan with an apse. The burial chamber is usually 5 to 15 metres long, and 1 to 2 metres high. The structures were originally covered by a mound, resembling the shape of an overturned ship. Near the entrance an obelisk named betile in Sardinian is usually found, which symbolizes the gods or ancestors who watched over the dead.
