Preprint
In the archaeological literature, the Bell Beaker archetypal is usually suggested as a male and warrior ideology, especially through grave goods. However, it does not reflect a monolithic cultural identity during the second half of the third millennium BCE, but rather real blended cultural practices reconciled at regional levels through ongoing int...
Chapter
This volume originates in a conference session that took place at the 2018 International Council of Archaeozoology conference in Ankara, Turkey, entitled "Humans and Cattle: Interdisciplinary Perspectives to an Ancient Relationship." The aim of the session was to bring together zooarchaeologists and their colleagues from various other research fiel...

Studies on the Bell Beaker horizon carried out in recent years in Central Iberia sites, such as Camino de las Yeseras, have led us to observe certain human behaviours and traditions, among other aspects many of them novel in relation to funerary rites. Extraction and movement of human bones and part of the grave goods from one tomb to another, or t...

El trabajo da a conocer una reducida ocupación del Hierro Antiguo localizada en la vega baja del Henares. Representa la última etapa de un “poblado de hoyos” instalado a finales del Neolítico. La arquitectura de esta última fase compagina las subestructuras de hoyos similares a los de las etapas precedentes con las cabañas aéreas de perfil rectilín...

Macrolithic artefacts have been often ‘forgotten’ or undervalued in studies on Late Prehistory. However, the high amount of these objects suggests that they had an important role for prehistorical communities. The 3rd millennium BCE site of Camino de las Yeseras, in central Iberia, provides a good collection of artefacts that were the subject of pe...
Article
Until recently, few studies have been made of lithic tools from Chalcolithic sites although they comprise a very abundant record in many productive and funerary contexts. However, it is now possible to go deeper into more aspects than merely typological ones. Use-wear analysis provides the possibility of inferring the functionality of certain lithi...

We assembled genome-wide data from 271 ancient Iberians, of whom 176 are from the largely unsampled period after 2000 BCE, thereby providing a high-resolution time transect of the Iberian Peninsula.We document high genetic substructure between northwestern and southeastern hunter-gatherers before the spread of farming.We reveal sporadic contacts be...

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...

Agriculture frst reached the Iberian Peninsula around 5700 BCE. However, little is known about the genetic structure and changes of prehistoric populations in diferent geographic areas of Iberia. In our study, we focus on the maternal genetic makeup of the Neolithic (~ 5500–3000 BCE), Chalcolithic (~ 3000–2200 BCE) and Early Bronze Age (~ 2200–1500...

Bell Beaker pottery spread across western and central Europe beginning around 2750 BCE before disappearing between 2200-1800 BCE. The mechanism of its expansion is a topic of long-standing debate, with support for both cultural diffusion and human migration. We present new genome-wide ancient DNA data from 170 Neolithic, Copper Age and Bronze Age E...

The current paper presents the study of a domestic structure, a kind of a hut pit, from Camino de las Yeseras, excavated in 2010. It assumes a formal analysis about the space and the materials with the aim to characterize this hut, its use, its chronological correspondence and the processes occurred from its construction to its abandonment. Due the...

Résumé : Depuis les travaux archéologiques de la deuxième partie du XXe siècle, le parallélisme et les possibles relations entre les « cultures archéologiques » du Chasséen et des « Sepulcres de fossa » de la Catalogne comme paradigmatiques du Néolithique moyen de l’Europe Occidentale, ont été soulevés et analysés par des chercheurs comme J. Maluqu...

Full-text available
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...

This paper presents the interdisciplinary study of the recent prehistory occupations (Neolithic and Early Bronze) found during the construction of El Liceu's new conservatoire, In Barcelona's El Raval district. Occupational remains correspond to a settlement with traces of combustion structures and other support elements. It emphaises the preservat...

The paper analyzes the Bell Beaker graves with female burials from three sites located near one another in the region of Madrid. The study addresses the female presence within contexts that have traditionally been considered mainly male. The variability of their grave goods and burial rituals and their identification in primary and secondary, singl...

Este trabajo presenta las características de una de las entradas documentadas en el foso 4 de Camino de las Yeseras, la mejor conocida y estudiada hasta el momento de todos los recintos de foso del yacimiento. Como ocurre con otros recintos de foso peninsulares y europeos, las zonas de acceso o tránsito son propensas a contener depósitos estructura...

This study focuses on aspects related to interpersonal or intergroup violence during the Iberian Chalcolithic by discussing some archaeological evidences which have not been thoroughly evaluated to date. Particular attention is given to a series of injuries observed in some burials, which in the light of recent anthropological and paleopathological...

This contribution presents a multiple burial in pit from Humanejos site, a large Chalcolithic settlement located in Parla, Madrid. The first part deals with the anthropological and palaeopathological study of eight indivials buried in two stratigraphic levels. The six individuals from the lower level may belong to the same family. In a second part...

El trabajo aborda la problematica del Campaniforme como un fenomeno bisagra entre el Calcolitico y la Edad del Bronce, particularmente en el centro peninsular, donde las dataciones obtenidas confirman su implantacion desde mediados del III milenio a. C. en convivencia con grupos Calcoliticos peninsulares y se prolonga, en su modalidad de estilo Cie...

El trabajo ofrece una visión renovada de la metalurgia del Horizonte campaniforme en Madrid a partir de los datos que aportan las recientes intervenciones en el yacimiento de Camino de las Yeseras. Sus contextos funerarios no se ajustan a los convencionalismos conocidos para estas tumbas pues las armas ausentes en los ajuares singulares son sustitu...
Article
This paper offers an overview of the Bell Beaker metallurgy in Madrid. This is a renewed vision thanks to data provided by the recent excavations in Camino de las Yeseras, a big settlement whose funerary contexts do not match the known conventions in these graves, for example, weapons – absent in the grave goods – are replaced with gold ornaments a...

The excavations carried out in the site of Camino de las Yeseras has provided a series of new aspects of the Chalcolithic period of Madrid. One of the most interesting aspects has been the fact that it has been possible to perform a study of the funeral rituals with a great variety of individual and collective burials in enclosures or delimited are...

The preliminary results are presented of the excavations in a large ditched enclosured Chalcolithic settlement. The site was probably a central place in the production and long distance exchange of surplus. The accumulations found of raw materials (flint, granite and metamorphic stones) and agricultural, stockbreeding and industrial products were e...

Entre los objetivos destacan: Una aproximación al estudio del inicio de algunos recintos de foso, su proceso de uso y colmatación, como también profundizar en las dinámicas de ocupación de algunos grandes poblados. Así mismo queremos precisar con los registros arqueobiológicos eventos paleoambientales en determinados contextos y estructuras, como también avanzar en la caracterización de diferentes materias primas, teconología lítica y ósea, entre otros.
