Giants' tomb (Italian: Tomba dei giganti, Sardinian: Tumba de zigantes/gigantis) is the name given by local people and archaeologists to a type of Sardinian megalithic gallery grave built during the Bronze Age by the Nuragic civilization. They were collective tombs and can be found throughout Sardinia, with 800 being discovered there. A stone cairn lies over the burial chambers, with some examples having a cup-shaped entrance similar to the court cairn tombs of Ireland. The giants' grave of S'ENA'E THOMES is a nuragic-era archaeological site located in the municipality of Dorgali, in the province of Nuoro, Sardinia. The tomb, dating back to the Bronze Age (II millennium BC), has a dolmen structure with a central stele. The large exedra is composed of slabs stucked into the ground and sorted by descending size from the stele. The funeral hall, rectangular in shape and about 11 m length, is covered with large stone slabs arranged in a Jack arch.
