What Are Giants’ Tombs?

Telluric energies and magnetic forces flowing under the earth’s crust make our planet a real “living organism”. Man, a creature of Mother Earth, is able to interact with and become very sensitive to these “movements”. Men absorb them unconsciously in particular situations.

These energies are more intense in certain environments than in others. According to recent studies ancient sacred places were built along these energy channels. Giants’ Tombs, those strange buildings, are scattered in large numbers around Sardinia. They are found only in this region and nowhere else in the world, which makes them extremely important. They are believed to accumulate such energies.

The Largest Tomb in Sardinia

The entrance faces east. This tomb was built using an existing 10,50 metres long gallery grave. Its platband cover is still complete, which is exceptional. Usually the covers of Giants’ Graves were destroyed, lost or stolen to be reused as building materials.

For example, the central slab of this tomb was removed by a farmer to be used as a plow. Fortunately it was retrieved in time.

The largest Sardinian exedra, with a 4.40 m high central stone slab, is well preserved. Excavation findings date the first phase of the gallery grave back to Late Bronze Age (1800 – 1600 b. C. –Bonannaro culture). Its reuse and enlargement date back to Middle Bronze Age (1600 – 1300 b. C.).

False Doors

A large stone slab with a small doorway supposedly connects the grave with the outside world. This opening symbolized the union between this world and the afterworld. Offers were left on a big bench at its base.

This reminds us of the function of the Egyptian “false door” that can also be found in Sardinia in the “domus de janas” (tombs excavated in the rock).

The false door is the contact between this world and the afterworld. Offerings were left at the false door for the dead. They used the false door to “show” themselves on Earth.

Telluric Energy of the Giants’ Tomb
This should be Mauro Aresu, the leading Sardinian expert, after studying these monuments for many years believes that Giants’ Tombs are the most important points of energetic emanation, so to be able to “heal” those who visit them or lie inside of them.

Their semicircular position supposedly follows telluric energy lines. These capture their flux, that would be absorbed by the stones, and then carried by them, like an electric wire, to the higher slab that would become a real energy accumulator. That’s why it is necessary to lie on the stones to be healed, a ritual that can be found in many parts of Italy.
The body of the dead would receive such a strong energy to tear his soul from the body and refill it with new life, Mother Earth life. It would therefore resurrect, going back to its origin.

My personal theory is that such a high stone slab might have thrown the soul to the sky, homewards. A concept similar to the Egyptian belief, but not unique in Sardinia, a region that has protected for centuries other connected symbols, such as false doors, Monte D’Accodi pyramid, tombs full of everyday life objects, worship of the Bull god. Moreover, the form of the Giants’ Tomb is very similar to a launching pad.

The upper part of the menhir is rounded. Initially the curve has little inclination, but it ends its vertical run with great élan. Rituals carried out to reconnect with the dead and for their rebirth supposedly took place at Giants’ Tombs, on  the exedra where there were seats. The supplicant fell into a trance-sleep through which gods could be contacted and their will could be heard. This ritual was very popular in the Greek culture.
