El yacimiento de ‘Casas del Turuñuelo’ se localiza en la comarca de las Vegas Altas del Guadiana en la provincia de Badajoz. Forma parte del término municipal de Guareña y actualmente ocupa un espacio dominado por los cultivos de regadío. Las intervenciones en el yacimiento comenzaron en el año 2014, cuando se detectó a través de la limpieza de perfiles de la elevación y de un sondeo estratigráfico la potencialidad e importancia del enclave. Las campañas de excavación han permitido exhumar parte de un edificio de dos plantas compuesto por un vestíbulo que da paso a varias estancias y un patio al que se accede por una escalinata monumental. El edificio de ‘Casas del Turuñuelo’ pertenece a una categoría de asentamiento única del valle medio del Guadiana, correspondiente a cronología tartésica, pero ya en su fase final (siglo V BC). El conjunto de 13 edificios catalogados dentro de este marco cultural se caracteriza por una fuerte influencia oriental y una gran riqueza arquitectónica, y se localizan en la confluencia del río Guadiana con alguno de sus principales afluentes. Sobre el pavimento del patio se han registrado más de 50 animales sacrificados entre los que destacan especialmente los équidos (hasta ahora se aproximan unos 50 équidos, la mayoria completos y en conexión anatómica). La fauna registrada constituye un conjunto cerrado debido a su colmatación rápida e intencionada y por tanto no distorsionado. Se trata de un caso único tanto por las características deposicionales, como por el tamaño y variedad de la muestra faunística. El marcado carácter estructurado de los depósitos animales indica un alto componente en relación a la actividad ceremonial que se interpreta como la primera evidencia de una hecatombe en el Mediterráneo. El extraordinario volumen de équidos localizados y la variabilidad osteométrica observada indican una cabaña equina probablemente mixta, que pudo estar compuesta por caballos (Equus caballus), burros o asnos (Equus asinus) y sus híbridos (mulas y burdéganos). Esto nos remite a una gestión ganadera especializada y eficiente que pudo estar orientada al transporte de mercancías, probablemente relacionado con el abastecimiento y/o su distribución. Para el estudio de los équidos se plantearon dos proyectos, uno de carácter arqueozoológico y otro veterinario-biológico que han sido concedidos por la Junta de Extremadura (proyecto IB 18131 y IB 18060, 2019-2021). Estos dos proyectos se articulan en relacion a otro general dirigido por Sebastián Celestino Pérez, "Construyendo Tarteso", del Plan Nacional de I+D+I del Ministerio (HAR2015-63788-P). El equipo de trabajo abarca todas las especialidades relacionadas con la reconstrucción y el análisis especifico de los restos animales. Este equipo está compuesto por miembros del Instituto de Arqueología de Mérida del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (IAM-CSIC), del Instituto de Restauración y Conservación de la Generalitat de Valencia, de las universidades de Extremadura (Facultad de Veterinaria, Escuela de Ingenieros Industriales), y por los equipos de Bioarqueologia de las universidades de Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, del Instituto Milá y Fontanals del CSIC y del Instituto Carlos III-Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Plan de trabajo: • Excavación, conservación y reconstrucción de los individuos por personal altamente cualificado (arqueozoólogos y conservadores). • Análisis arqueozoológico. • Análisis tafonómico. • Análisis patológico óseo y parasitológico. • Análisis genético. • Análisis de paleodietas (isótopos d15N-d13C y micro desgaste dental). • Estudio sobre el origen geográfico de los animales (isótopos de estroncio). • Estudios morfométricos mediante técnicas de imagen avanzadas (Tomografía computerizada) con el fin de crear una biblioteca de alta resolución. • Restauración de los esqueletos mejor conservados para su musealización y reconstrucción mediante impresoras 3D de la hecatombe para que pueda ser visitada insitu. • Estudio del sacrificio y de las pautas rituales en época tartésica. • Estudio de los aparejos o alabardas de los équidos. Análisis de los desgastes dentales por el uso de bocado y de las concentraciones de metal.
