Beginning of archaeological fieldwork in Santa Margarida

Gramp 2020 07 13 005

A reduced version of archaeological fieldwork started at the Archaeological Site of Santa Margarita this Monday. This year, due to the current Covid-19 crisis, several GRAMP researchers, in collaboration with the Centre d'Estudis Martorellencs, will excavate at this site without the collaboration of undergraduate students. Archaeological fieldwork will focus on the identification of morphological features of the earliest structures found at the site and their layout. These are presumably from the early Christian period, and they were detected at the end of the previous campaign.

GRAMP was present last week in the Seminar “Frontières et itinéraires en Europe du Moyen Âge au XXe siècle” organized by the Lab ARCHE (Art, Civilisation et Histoire de l’Europe). Within a collaborative framework between GRAMP and ARCHE research groups, our colleague Esther Travé was invited by Dr. Damien Coulon in order to perform a conference entitled “Micro-histoires archéologiques dans les espaces frontaliers ibériques: exemples pour une analyse intégrée des sources écrites et matérielles médiévales”. This took place at the Maison Interuniversitaire des Sciences de l'Homme – Alsace (MISHA).

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!

After the quarantine…

After three months in quarantine, GRAMP’s researchers are back to the lab and on-site activity is slowly recuperating its normal routine, according to the reopening plan at the University of Barcelona. Despite the quarantine, these past few months working from home have been useful to prepare ahead some collaborative publications that will come out soon. Find attached through  this link one of the first outcomes.
