The history of Aglientu’s territory documents a continuity of human settlements from the prehistoric to the end of the medieval times. Archeology scholars have, in fact, classified some ceramic fragments found near the coast of the river "Lu Litarroni" as dating from the Neolithic period. There are also numerous testimonies of the Nuragic period. The famous Casalis, official geographer of the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont, during his trip to Sardinia 1837-38, documents a detailed list of 18 ceramic findings, nearly all on the coast. Most of the traces are barely perceptible. On the coast of Vignola remains two highly visible nuraghes: Tuttusoni Nuraghe and Finucchjiaglia Nuraghe.
