Research line “Landscape archaeology, peopling processes and habitat environments” is one of the main pillars of our research. Peopling processes and settlement strategies are analyzed from the results obtained at different sites coordinated by some of our team-members.
Currently, fieldwork is carried out at the early medieval settlements at the Upper Arlanza Basin, particularly the site of Revenga (Comunero de Revenga, Burgos); the archaeological complex of Santa Margarida and Sant Genís de Rocafort (Martorell, Barcelona) and the Iberian and Medieval Site of l’Esquerda (Roda de Ter, Barcelona).
Our research has contributed to the research field of early medieval settlement in the Iberian Peninsula since the beginning of our work in Revenga. The chronology of these sites can be considered at least a couple of centuries earlier than traditionally assumed. Similarly, work carried out at Santa Margarida, has provided a deeper insight into the knowledge of sacred spaces and offered significant improvement in the methodological field. The integrated management of archaeological information and material studies has been one of the major achievements. In addition, the development of high quality experimental archaeology has been one of the main outputs obtained at the archaeological site of L’Esquerda.
