Estudio del conjunto de materiales metálicos del Bronce Final recuperado a finales de 2008 en las excavaciones arqueológicas del yacimiento de Las Lunas (Yuncler, Toledo, España), y su relación con la matlurgia del Bronce Final en Europa. La localización geográfica del hallazgo, lejos de las principales zonas de dispersión conocidas para este tipo de conjuntos, la singularidad de los objetos que integra, y las relaciones atlánticas y mediterráneas que evidencian sus materiales lo convierten en un ejemplo destacado para el estudio de este período en el centro de la Península Ibérica.

The main consideration is the hiltfort was previously planning. Planning that was carried out at time that the community lives in another place. The fire that destroyed the settlement has permitted the conservation of some of the building materials. These materials indicate a strong dependence the most next environmental resources.

Investigatin a quadrangular building of unknown function that could have served as a military garrison, as a horreum or as a place where lapis specularis, the first crystal known to be used in windows (Plinius. Nat. Hist. XXXVI, 161) was shaped. This brought economic prosperity to the region in the time of Augustus. At the beginning of the 70's a team from the Guelph University, Ontario, Canada, headed by prof. M. Sadek, conducted two campaigns of excavation at the roman site of Cerro de la Muela, Carrascosa del Campo, Spain. Despite the discovery of a building of colossal size, the work was interrupted forever. The great building discover by Sadek team is a rectangle of 297x244feet with four square towers of 37x37 feet in the corners. The building stands on top of a small hill and it is part of a settlement about 35 acres.
