Sardinia is one of the most geologically ancient lands in Europe, inhabited during the Upper Paleolithic era, home to a Nuragic civilization that left nothing behind by way of writing. Folklore paint these people as seafarers, perhaps mercenaries - Srdn- was recorded in 16th century BC Egyptian texts — who may have originated from Asia-Minor.

Then there is Sardinian language. Many words, dialects, names of mountains and rivers have no basis in Greek, Latin or Punic, nor Semitic or pre-Indo European. They do, however, show analogies with Basque and North Libyan languages and dialects along the Danube. Given that Sardinians’ physiognomy is also the most dolichocephalic, with a high incidence of long heads, and the DNA of its population from 10,000 BC surviving in the present population — a unique genetic heritage — suggests their language may be a remnant of a former, and now lost, civilization.
