However, fragments of ceramics of the Ozieri culture have also been discovered and dated at c. 3500 BC.The Nuorese was a centre of the Nuragic civilization, as attested by more than 30 Nuragic sites, such has the village discovered in the countryside of Tanca Manna, just outside Nuoro, which was made of about 800 huts.The Nuorese was crossed by a Roman road which connected Karalis to Ulbia .
