Introduction
I work as a technician posittion in digital applications at the Dept. of Prehistory and Archaeology. Faculty of Geography and History. UNED (Spain) I collaborate with Spanish research centers (IIIPC-UC;LAQ-UAB) and internationally with LEICMA_IIA_UfPEL (Brazil) and ArqueoLab_IA_UBA (Argentina). I´m interesting in next topics: synergies between computation science and archaeological problems; spatial and geoestatistics analysis, geomatics, data mining, nonlinear processes and social dynamics.

Article
Full-text available
In the mid-1990s, Moro Cave rock-shelter became a key site to understand the rock art phenomenon in southernmost Iberia, as the discovery of Solutrean engravings settled former arguments about the presence of Upper Palaeolithic art in the region. Since then, discontinuous and unsystematic interventions in this site not only left many questions unan...
Article
Full-text available
The Geosite of Jarama VI is a rock shelter containing a lithostratigraphic sequence formed by five Upper Pleistocene sedimentary units, three of wich present archaeological remains of the Middle Palaeolithic with an age older than 50 ka BP. A bone of Homo neanderthalensis has been found in one of those units. In order to preserve all the analogical...

The Geosite of Jarama VI is a rock shelter containing a lithostratigraphic sequence formed by five Upper Pleistocene sedimentary units, three of wich present archaeological remains of the Middle Palaeolithic with an age older than 50 ka BP and even a bone remain of Homo neanderthalensis. In order to preserve all this analog information of this Geos...

Jarama VI is located on the NW edge of the Guadalajara province (Castilla{La Mancha, Spain). It is a rock shelter partially filled up by sediments which were excavated between 1989 and 1994. The archaeological excavation shows a lithostratigraphic sequence formed by three Pleistocene sedimentary units (Jordá 2007) with thousands of archaeological r...

El I Congreso en Ingeniería Geomática tiene como objetivo reunir a científicos, académicos y estudiantes de doctorado para intercambiar y compartir sus resultados de investigación e innovación relativos a cualquier disciplina Geomática. Ofrece una plataforma interdisciplinar de primer nivel para presentar y discutir las innovaciones, tendencias, pr...
Article
In the following paper we formulate an interpretation about how the space was managed inside a classic ‘Fortín’, a sort of small fort, which was located in the Argentinean Pampas during the 1860–1870's period. We review the main features of these sites, like the nature of its structures and buildings or the quick abandonment of military positions d...

En este artículo proponemos el uso de dichas tecnologías (TIG y TIC) sobre el arte rupestre prehistórico (e histórico) del Campo de Gibraltar, conocido como «Arte Sureño». Trabajamos con un caso de estudio concreto: el Abrigo II del Conjunto de Bacinete (Los Barrios; Cádiz), sobre el que implementamos la captura, gestión y tratamiento analítico de...

Article
PreCaPas (Prehistoric Canoeists' Passages Project) is based on the use of geo-computing tools for the detection, description, and evaluation of the presence of terrestrial passages from prehistoric canoeists: the Kawésqar People, hunter–fisher–gatherer groups from the Fuego-Patagonia region of Chile. In this southern region, the heuristic value of...
Article
More than 40 years have passed since the first meetings in which the different aspects of the archaeological survey as scientific methodology were discussed. At the beginning there was an intense debate on the different methods for surveying the field and, nowadays, new techniques and methodologies have been incorporated to the archaeological surve...
Article
Full-text available
Reconocer e interpretar la dinámica espacial de grupos humanos con alta movilidad es una actividad compleja per se; y si el acceso a dicho grupo solo es posible desde el registro arqueológico, la complejidad del problema espacial se antoja mayor, no por la parcialidad del registro, sino por el modo en el que los investigadores/as seamos capaces de...

Full-text available
Sin duda, cuando en Arqueología se hace referencia a cuestiones de análisis cuantitativo que vayan más allá de una serie de descriptores estadísticos y algunos test, se está entrado en un entorno poco amigable ya que ni se acaba de visualizar ciertos límites del análisis estocástico, y lo que quizás sea más importante, no suele existir la capacidad...

In 2011 we undertook an informed analysis of the context and positioning of stencils in La Garma and El Castillo caves, taking a number of observations and measurements of each visible hand stencil. By focussing on the context of hand stencils we planned to widen our understanding of stencils by exploring processes of individual decision-making mad...

Advances in digital technology have raised the capacity of capturing, processing and analyzing spatial data, bringing realistic and accurate reproductions of the elements in archaeological spaces. Current hardware and software have great potential in modelling phenomena and simulating their parameters, leading effective resources to these archaeolo...

Se pretende dar a conocer el pésimo estado de conservación y el grado de abandono de un edificio (torre medieval) catalogado como BIC situado en un para je natural (Parque Natural de los Alcornocales, Cádiz) con alto valor ecológico. Junto a esto, se propone la elaboración de una serie de recomendaciones enca minadas a la conservación del inmueble...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Current digital technology gives to archaeology the chance to solve complex problems, as the case of environmental variables and their virtual simulation. On the other hand, non-invasive techniques are unavoidable when the ‘in situ’ analysis could damage the heritage. Whether “off-situ” virtual simulations are a promising alternative, we must keep...

N 0 k m 400 Hand stencils are an intriguing feature of prehistoric imagery in caves and rockshelters in several parts of the world, and the recent demonstration that the oldest of those in Western Europe date back to 37 000 years or earlier further enhances their significance. Their positioning within the painted caves of France and Spain is far fr...

We present the methodology of computer modeling of an archaeological excavation. The method allows the study of archaeological formation, modification and transformation processes. Our main goal has been to build a computer model of midden-site formation processes. The main purpose of these models is converting excavation data to visual elements (l...
Article
Full-text available
Domestic space is one of the most difficult terms to define. This is the reason why there are so many definitions. The real problem is that archaeologists tend to apply this word to different references: 1) as a container of people and actions; 2) as a socially produced thing and/or as a socially used instrument; 3) as a mathematical object. In thi...

The purpose of geostatistics and other quantitative spatial analysis methods is the characterization of the processes having generated the spatial distribution of archaeological data. In this paper1 we investigate whether such methods can be used to distinguish the regularity or randomness of the social event or events having generated the observed...
