Throughout prehistoric times it was common to smear red pigment on the bodies of the dead. Iron oxide was the most common pigment, but other pigments were also used. In this work, two red-stained bones from the megalithic tomb of El Moreco were characterized by SEM-EDS, FTIR and GC-MS. The results provide evidence for the usage of a pigment obtaine...

In light of the new chronological data and interpretative approaches, this paper revisits an alleged double prehistoric grave discovered next to the remains of a furnace, which were excavated in 2005 at the site of Castile and Leon Advisory Council, in Zamora. The new results suggest rather a child burial accompanied, as a relic, by the calvaria bo...

In recent years, the notion of landscape learning has been the object of increasing attention when discussing the neolithization of Europe. The landscape learning model stresses the necessity of gathering environmental information about a previously unfamiliar region. Therefore, it is particularly relevant in cases where the beginning of a farming...

Sites of Cogotas I Culture (1800-1150 cal. BCE) have been understood as a proof of a hierarchical settlement during Bronze Age in Douro Valley. Recent readings also point out that these places were not inhabited, but were symbolic references for the surrounding communities. Taking one of these hilltop sites, Carricastro (Tordesillas, Valladolid), t...

Paleontological, archaeological, and biogeographical evidences strongly suggest the common genet (Genetta genetta; Mammalia, Carnivora) was translocated by humans into Europe. A widespread hypothesis considers the Muslims, which conquered Iberia at the eighth century AD, as the putative agents of translocation. This hypothesis was reinforced becaus...

The archaeological site of Molino Sanchón II (Villafáfila, Zamora, Spain) is interpreted as a salt processing factory. Natural brine obtained from the saline Villafáfila Lake Complex was boiled in coarse ceramic vessels placed on supports made of raw clay, which stood over a hearth of glowing embers in order to produce hard salt cakes. Hundreds of...

The aerial and surface prospecting projects undertaken by G. Delibes’ team during the last two decades have led to the discovery and documentation of over fifty ditched enclosures scattered along the plains of the Spanish northern plateau (Delibes et alii, 2014). If we consider that about twenty years ago the existence of such structures was unknow...

From around 2750 to 2500 BC, Bell Beaker pottery became widespread across western and central Europe, before it disappeared between 2200 and 1800 BC. The forces that propelled its expansion are a matter of long-standing debate, and there is support for both cultural diffusion and migration having a role in this process. Here we present genome-wide...

The Bell Beaker complex is one of the most pan-European horizons in Later Prehistory. It is characterized by a distinctive assemblage of items that show a strong uniformity. However, the processes leading to the emergence and expansion of the Bell Beaker complex are still to be explained. In addition to the Beaker items themselves, social elites al...

Palynological studies on sediments from Central Iberia show palaeoclimatic changes at the end of the 3 rd millennium BC as a consequence of the 4.2 ka BP event. In the archaeological record they coincide with the peak and decline of the Ciempo-zuelos Group, one of the late regional styles of the Bell Beak- er Culture in Iberia. In this paper we ex...

The authors take us to the salt lakes of Villafáfila in north-west Spain, where they have demonstrated by excavation that salt extraction had begun by the second half of the third millennium BC. The salt pans uncovered were accompanied by copious amounts of decorated Beaker pottery, for which political and symbolic interpretations are proposed.

Despite new findings of tombs (often with secondary remains) the funerary information about the Cogotas I archaeological group remains too scanty. Consequently, non-preserving burial rites, including the exposure of corpses, have been suggested at some point. The discovery of a number of skeletons in burial pits at the site of Tordillos encourages...

Large bifacial flint tools are frequently found in Copper Age sites from Iberian Península. They usually show a visible gloss on their denticulated working edges, possibly related to cereal cutting. As a result, these tools have been interpreted as sickle blades. This paper partially contradicts this hypothesis, since most of the pieces recovered a...
