Prehistoric cybermen? Sardinias lost warriors rise from the dust   YB2NoCYuYxBSWbeBgVHYdDl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

Archaeologists and conservation experts on the Italian island of Sardinia have succeeded in re-assembling literally thousands of fragments of smashed sculpture to recreate a small yet unique army of life-size stone warriors which were originally destroyed by enemy action in the middle of the first millennium BC.

 

It’s the only group of sculpted life-sized warriors ever found in Europe. Though consisting of a much smaller number of figures than China’s famous Terracotta Army, the Sardinia example is 500 years older and is made of stone rather than pottery.
