A journey from prehistory to the early Middle Ages through the cultures that animated the Sulcis area: you will discover the pre-Nuragic, Nuragic, Phoenician-Carthaginian and Roman ages, with a particular focus on the Monte Sirai site. Founded in 1988 (for the 50th anniversary of the creation of Carbonia as a municipality) in the original home of the Sebariu mine (now a museum), and renovated twenty years later, the Villa Sulcis museum houses artefacts ranging from the Neolithic to the Byzantine age found in sites in and around Carbonia, derived from two private collections, 'Pispisa' and 'Doneddu'. The 'new' archaeological museum consists of three rooms, describing the prehistory of Sulcis (6000-2800 BC), with life in the caves of Coderra and Baccu Arrus, the birth of agriculture and villages (such as Barbusi) and ancestor worship, thanks to the funerary equipment of the necropolis of Monte Crobu and Cannas di Sotto (Carbonia) and the domus de Janas of Locci Santus (in San Giovanni Suergiu). You will go even further back in time with the remains of the cave shelter under the influence of su Carroppu, in the Sironi area of Carbonia, which, in addition to documenting the early Neolithic phases, has given us back the first traces of man in Sardinia, dating back to the Mesolithic period (9000 BC ).
