Broch & Haggis/Nuraghe & Zurette

WHERE: Sardinia, Italy. WHAT: ancient Mediterranean culture.
MAP: Barumini, near Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. Thumbnail pops-up source page.
One of the locations that never made the cut for our panoramas feature yesterday was Su Nuraxi di Barumini in Sardinia. We are familiar with walking in places that are labelled on the map as Tumulus, Ancient British Hill Fort, or even Ancient Broch, so Nuraghe sounded interesting.
If your computing resources were able to handle yesterday's panoramas then a visit to William Woolf's contribution on Su Nuraxi di Barumini, Barumini, Sardinia, Italy, is recommended. William's own web site features dedicated pages about this location.
Other less well endowed visitors need not feel left out of the party. The twice yearly magazine L'Isolo di Sardegna (with an excellent English version, The Island of Sardinia, but it rolls so seductively in the native tongue) has an introduction to the island's ancient cultures, plus a nuraghi feature that includes Su Nuraxi di Barumini. Exploration of the SarNow.com site, starting from the contents page, is recommended for the curious or gastronomically inclined… zurette… mmm!
