Sardinian archaeologists find 'giant'

Monte Prama site gets new addition

(ANSA) - Oristano, September 25 - Archeologists working in Sardinia's southwestern region have uncovered a new 'giant', officials reported on Thursday.
    Archaeologists from the Superintendency of Cagliari and Oristano and Cagliari and Sassari universities dug up another monumental sandstone giant at the Monte Prama excavation site in Oristano on Thursday morning.
    The Monte Prama site is home to the Giants of Monte Prama, ancient stone figures from the Bronze-age Nuragic civilization that were discovered en masse in the early 1970s.
    When reconstructed, the sandstone figures are approximately 2.5 meters in height. The remains of the giant sculpture, along with additional finds, were placed in storage.
