About this lecture
The Giants of Monte Prama are colossal, prehistoric stone statues of boxers, archers and warriors, recently found in Sardinia dating back to 800 BC before Rome was even founded. They belong to the Nuragic civilisation, which flourished in Sardinia for two millennia until the second century AD. The figures, standing over 6.5ft high, are distinguished by their unearthly eyes.
