Found the only argaric grave with two men, known up to the present time in La Bastida

Tumba hallada en la Bastida con dos individuos masculinos

 

Last summer, it was discovered a grave containing two male skeletons under one of the dwellings. They died at the age of 22-27 and 20-25, respectively. They were found with a knife, an axe with remains of its wooden handle, a pot, a bowl, some barley seeds and a leg of a young goat next to them.

The preliminary studies indicate that the corpses were not buried at the same time. The presence of two men in the same grave is exceptional in the Argaric world. This fact enriches the debate about the blood relationship in that society.
