Amazing rock cut tomb in Sardinia
He then asked them in Sardinian (a language very different from Italian): "Did the sow give birth to the piglets?" The excavators answered (always in Sardinian): "Yes, and you should see how many and how beautiful they are!" That was the proof that something amazing had been found up the hills in the Tenuta Mariani.
The sealed wonders of Sardinia
We have also called Mrs Luisanna Usai, archaeologist of the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici for Sassari and Nuoro provinces and in charge of the Bonorva area. We wanted to know if there is any project to remove the seal to the tomb and to open it to the public, along with the other sites of the necropolis. The archaeologists expressed her point of view quite clearly: "I don't want to spread any word about it. The main aim of the Soprintendenza is to protect those sites; the paintings are faint, so the tomb will remain sealed." She concluded saying: "We are the ones who decide which are the best channels to inform people about this kind of discoveries."
In the Celtic world, the triskele is found carved in Neolithic stones all over Ireland and western Europe. For modern Pagans and Wiccans, it is sometimes adopted to represent the three Celtic realms of earth, sea and sky.

In Sardinia tombs are being explored and then sealed by boulders and concrete. The people involved deny their discovery and consistently fail to present evidence of these discoveries to academic scrutiny. These wonderful tombs and the art they boast remain preserved from vandalism, but aren't adding anything to the pages of history.

What the symbol meant to the pagans who built Newgrange and other monuments is unknown.
The shape of grottoes can vary from that of a rounded hut with conical or triangular ceiling. The walls are often decorated with magical reliefs. The corpses, painted with red ochre like the tomb's walls, were buried together with common life objects, jewels and tools

its truly amazing how a person can gather info and put it up to build a little "story" or w/e you think you have going on but not smart enough to put it in the correct place (which would be on BTS.com aka Belowtopsecret.com) this site is an alternate news source not a tabloid or a place where someone thinks they can make "their big journalistic break" and get popular with the S&F contest. Its rather ignorant imo..
