The required conditions for the appearance of the urban life in the Iberian Peninsula start with Neolithic arrival to these coasts. The introduction of a cattle-farming combined economy is the arrival point for the spread of the sedentary way of life, which will conduct to the development of the social procedures needed for the development of the f...

Nowadays, the use of direct analysis are increasing in front of traditional analysis that requires handle sample [1]. The advantages of direct analyses are related to the facts that are faster, cheaper, easier and more ecological than the traditional methods. However, the use of these analytical methods need to be developed and optimize to obtain r...

In this paper we present recent research concerning the neolithization process in the East of Spain, evaluating the time span between the last hunther-gatherer groups and the first farmers (c. 5950–5150 cal. BC). To do that we have compiled and filtered current information about radiocarbon dates and sites in order to discuss the state of the art r...

En este trabajo intentamos visualizar la estructura del territorio durante la Edad del Bronce en Teruel mediante herramientas SIG. Con ello se persigue un doble objetivo: establecer una zona de costes isotrópicos alrededor de cada uno de los yacimientos y, establecer las vías de comunicación más efectivas entre ellos.

Among Humanities, Archaeology has always been ground-breaking in the use of technological advances when approaching historical knowledge, which has eased and improved subsequent work on registered data. Using software like gvSIG, not only are these studies able to be undertaken, but also other actions such as georeferencing stratigraphical units, v...

Los trabajos de campo llevados a cabo en el yacimiento de cronología eneolítica de El Cinto Mariano, en Requena (Valencia), han permitido identificar en uno de los sectores de excavación un área de redil o espacio de reclusión de ganado ovicaprino. La corroboración de dicha funcionalidad viene dada por una tipología característica de los depósitos...

In this paper we present the results related to the excavation works conducted in Late Neolithic and Bell Beaker sites of Quintaret (Montesa, Valencia) and Corcot (l’Alcúdia de Crespins, Valencia), both in the middle valley of Canyoles river. The sites, neighboring each other, offer a quite different volume of information (Quintaret: 51 structures;...

Archaeological works at the site of Mas d’Is (Penàguila, Alacant) have revealed important deposits dating back to the Early Holocene. The more recent field seasons at the Neolithic site are one of the key projects that the Department of Prehistory and Archaeology at the University of Valencia carries out in the region. Previous campaigns had reveal...

Desde el VI milenio cal a.C. se documentan en toda Europa cierta clase de estructuras excavadas de dimensiones y morfología variables, comúnmente conocidas como Fosos. En la Península Ibérica, el desarrollo de la arqueología de campo ha proporcionado en las dos últimas décadas un notable incremento de esta clase de estructuras asociadas a poblados...

Casa Montero is a mining complex located outside Madrid (Spain), dated from the Early Neolithic (c. 5400–5000 cal bc). An area of some 4 ha has been investigated and some 4000 shafts recorded, of which 324 have been excavated. The characterization of its raw flint materials and the establishment of its diagnostic features are indispensable in the r...

After two decades of continued field work developing survey and excavation projects, the Serpis valley represent a privileged area for analysing the origin and evolution of the first agricultural societies in the Iberian peninsula. The information generated in all fields enlights the discussion about the Neolithic; furthermore it allows a social ch...

This paper advances some results of the analysis of the lithic production recovered during the first field season in the flint mine of Casa Montero (c. 5400-5000 cal BC). The study of some refits suggested the existence of a preference towards the exploitation of a specific raw material, the one with best knapping qualities. In order to confirm thi...

This paper describes the excavation and survey strategy designed for the study of the flint mine of Casa Montero, based on the application of a systematic aligned sampling method. This strategy has allowed us to define with certain accuracy the total extension of the prehistoric exploitation –small when compared to other European flint mines -, and...

This paper focuses on recent discoveries made in the central valleys of the Spanish Mediterranean coast. Fresh evidence recovered from this area allows us to propose some alternative pathways in the development of power and social inequalities, using an approach based on non-linear systems and the so called chaos-complexity theory. In archaeologica...

After two decades of fieldwork, including intensive and extensive surveys as well as some excavations, the Serpis valley can be considered like an exceptional laboratory to study of the agriculturalist way of life and its consequent transformation from horticulture to intensive agriculture. Both quantity and quality of data allow us to confront the...
