Sardinia’s culture goes back thousands of years, and was rich, as its megalithic remains, from Giant’s tombs to nuraghis (megalithic stone towers), demonstrate. The area around Monte d’Accoddi has a number of necropoleis, some in the near vicinity of the site. This might suggest that this pyramid might be linked with a cult of dead. But if so, the question is why only one pyramid was ever constructed on the entire island. And why it looks so much like a ziggurat, rather than have a more unique nature, or resemble more e.g. the platform pyramids of Tenerife and the not too distant Sicily. It invites speculation, and a conclusion that someone from elsewhere came here, and he or they alone wanted to be buried in such fashion – their tradition – is a tempting answer.
