Last year I visited Sardinia with Megalithic Odyssey for Series One alongside James Swagger and co-host presenter, Thomas Sheridan.
Our investigations led us to one of the most amazing places which is rarely visited but presents a true Neolithic wonder.
Cut into the rock is the Domus de Janas meaning the House of Fairies. Imagine seeing a squarish shape perfectly cut into the rock that leads to a room that has another square like window that leads to another chamber and so on for many, many rooms - that's a hypogeum in Sardina.
James and I managed to climb down a very steep hill. We entered the hypogeum and it was magical and I felt like Indiana Jones, well the yin version! Hardly anyone ever goes here. All was still and quite..
James wanted to test out the acoustic properties and experiment with sound as we went deeper into the womb-like hypogeum...
The sound was intense and fantastic to hear. Now bear in mind James is over 6 feet tall and I am 5 feet 4 inches tall. James enters another chamber and sound tones and suddenly shouts 'BATS!' Unfortunately the sound disturbed them and James leapt out and I ran hard to keep pace with his long strides! Phew, we came out in the nick of time!
Today these chambers are dull and grey but back in the day - yes that same time frame constantly referenced 3400 BC - 2700 BC they were richly painted in red and gold ochre. A beautiful sight to behold.
I will be arranging a Goddess tour there next year to explore the energies and interact with easy to access sites!
