Introduction

The first interventions performed by Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona took place between late 2008 and early 2009. During that period, it was conducted a general recognition of the land through systematic techniques of surface and geophysical survey. The documentation of the land surface through aerial photography (using a camera-Zeppelin) and the collection of archaeological material on the surface allowed to record the sectors affected by illegal digging, that helped to locate the sectors with a higher material density in order to choose new areas of excavation. In addition, the surroundings of La Bastida were areas of geo-mining survey, primarily in the area of Los Picarios, in order to locate mineral resources near the archaeological site. During the first three months of 2009, the areas where the excavations of the midtwentieth century had been concentrated, were cleaned and, where applicable, “re-excavated”.

In March, there were opened new areas of excavation adjacent to the north and northeast sector excavated between 1944 and 1950. In the 2533m2 excavated for the time being, there are thirty architectural areas (enlace con Ámbitos) and about 43 graves (enlace con Tumbas). Once concluded the excavation of the foothill, the restoration team undertook a campaign of several months to consolidate all structures exposed. These activities are part of the site musealization program, which will display the archaeological findings in the best accessibility and preservation conditions.
