THE SUPERIOR VAIN OF THE CENTRAL TOWER

The investigations of excavation have allowed to reconstruct the last phases of life in the vain (A2) up to its abandonment and to the collapse of part of the structure, that currently preserves itself for a height of around m 4,50 and it has a base diameter of m 4,20/4,50.
Around the V-VI sec. A. C. the environment was intensely used removing the traces of the last nuragic age life, of which have found fragments of bowls, a handle with upside-down elbow decorated with engraved points and a ziretto with X handles (fig. 11, 4-5).





Of the high middle-age phase are preserved various fire containers in raw ceramics with two or four handles applied below the edge (fig. 11, 1-2) and a probable pitcher with fine decorations (fig. 11, 3).

After a phase of abandonment entirely marked by a layer almost sterile (fig. 19, US 84), was had the collapse of the vain roof, that formed almost a bed of stones (fig. 8) on which have been found the fragments of a container in row ceramics (high middle-age fig. 9, 1), an iron weight of g 300 (fig. 9, 2) and part of a saucer in majolica polychrome of Lazio production of the XVI century A. C. (fig. 10).






A fragment of the same dish has also been recovered in the courtyard B with other finds, earth and stones fallen by the summit of the tower with the collapse of the structure.
It sealed the superior vain of the central tower a second and last collapse of stones happened in post-Renaissance age.
