There was an initial crisis around 1150 bc, when 3/4 nuraghi were abandoned and purposely toppled, and no more nuraghi were built after that period, but the nuragics recovered from it and the settlements around the pre-existing nuraghi grew in size and complexity, while metallurgy and art continued to prosper and improved; large sanctuaries were built around the pre-existing temples where different communities congregated. The second and final crisis happened towards 750-700 bc and they never recovered from that, many settlements and sanctuaries were abandoned, and the locals stopped producing their own kind of art and just imitated the phoenician-levantine arts and way of life. The nail in the coffin was probably the carthaginian conquest of most of the island towards 540-520 bc, exports decreased drastically and among other problems malaria became endemic on the island.So, what ended up happening to them?
