he workshop aims to discover the technique used by the Nuragic populations to build the bronze statues. The short theoretical part on the Nuragic populations is presented in the archaeological section of the P.AR.C .. Soon after, the theory turns into practice. You go to the large laboratory where you create a copy of a figurine with suitable materials.
Educational workshop activities
All didactic activities of the laboratory foresee a theoretical moment and a related practical activity.
The archeology educational workshop begins in the archaeological section of the PARC, where the children follow a brief presentation on the archaeological area of Santu Antine with an in-depth study of the nuragic well. Thanks to a touch screen it is possible to simulate a visit to the deepest nuragic well of Sardinia of over 40m. Through the viewers it is possible to fly over the hill and see the ancient Nuragic, Punic and later Roman settlement from above.
Manual activity and simulation of archaeological excavation
Practical activities take place in the large laboratory of the Museum. First the reconstruction of the well and the timeline and then the reconstruction of the plastic bronzes.
Visit to the the archaelogic site
For the more athletic it is possible after a short walk, about 500m, to reach the top of the hill. In addition to seeing where the nuragic well and the nuraghe of Santu Antine is located, you can admire a breathtaking view. The view extends until it reaches the Gulf of Oristano on one side and the mountains of Gennargentu on the other.

How to end the day?
For the afternoon, immediately after a packed lunch or in a farmhouse, we suggest a pleasant guided walk to the Giara Park in search of the ponies and to discover the park’s biodiversity.
How to book a workshop
Usually, during school trips an entire museum is dedicated to the activities of a single school. Since there are not many dates available, we recommend booking the day well in advance for your school.
Reservations are recorded both by e-mail and by telephone. In addition, you can always receive the catalog for schools updated with all the proposals, costs and scheduled activities by sending the request via e-mail.
