Archaeological fieldwork at Sant Genís de Rocafort

Last Friday we conclude the third archaeological fieldwork campaign in the monastery of Sant Genís de Rocafort, led by GRAMP researchers. From September 7th we carried the fieldwork out despite the special circumstances arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, as they were delayed according to the initial calendar. The excavation allowed us to know the monastic structures better, and to discover the access stairs to the upper terrace.

Archaeological fieldwork at the site of l’Esquerda

After the end of archaeological fieldwork at the site of Santa Margarida, a new campaign at the site of l’Esquerda has just started. This is an atypical summer in which circumstances forced us to work in reduced teams. This year, excavation is focused on the Iberian layers of the oppidum and the photogrammetric record of the medieval village. He hope it to be fruitful!
