THE COURTYARD B



The architectural peculiarity of the nuraghe Nuracale is represented from the vast courtyard (m 12 of length in the side East-west and m 14 in the side North-south, m 4 of width in average), that occupies a superior surface to the 90 sq mt. It deals with a notable ampleness for a nuraghe quadrilobato, verifiable only in the nuraghe S. Miali of Pompu and in some nuraghis pentalobati.
Another remarkable aspect, that will be object of stratigraphical investigation in the next excavations, is the presence in the West sector (fig. 13) of an high cumulation of concretes in white sandstone and in basalt of various dimensions and forms (concretes wit form of T, L, shelves etc.), some of which with some hollow near the borders for the insertion of lead clamps for fixing (fig. 14, 1-3).





The finds coming from the South fields, East and West of the courtyard confirm the frequentation of the monument in Roman age and high-medieval, especially around to the V-VI century A. C., as they document the containers in raw ceramics hand modeled or with slow lathe with mix of dark color (fig. 16,1) and the ceramics pots in clear mix with disk covers and central taking (fig. 16, 5-6), sometimes decorated with engraved circles, but also the shaped ferrules of cilindric amphoras of African production used for the transport of olive oil or wine (fig. 16, 2-4).






Also the fragments of two dishes have been recovered in sealed African, one of which it brings stamped on the fund two covetous (fig. 17, 3), a fragmentary oil lamp of African importation, with the disk adorned by a cristogramma in relief (fig. 17, 1), and a wine cup in glass with disk foot and low stem (fig. 17, 2) of a note typology attested also in the not distant Cornus. It seems meaningful the frequentation of punic age (fig. 18), whose layer has just been notched by the excavations that have been interrupted in correspondence of lintels of the accesses to the towers.
